About This Project

Paul Gravett


The Reappearance series uses multiple exposures, intentional camera movement, and layering to create new portraits that are entirely unpredictable and startling.

With these techniques, the author explores the intersection of photography and contemporary art to create evocative, painterly likenesses of personality and mood. Dust, tears, and blemishes that mark the original photographs add rich, abstract elements. Nothing is added or subtracted during the ‘development’ process. Emerging through the thick veil of time, the reappearance of the sitter is the survival of memory.
