Layered Photo Portraits Reveal The Movement Of The Human Face [Pics]

2D photos take on a 3D appearance when taken in succession over a short period of time.

Yoshihisa Tanaka and Ryuta Iiada are two Japanese artists that make up the collective Nerhol. Their most recent project – misunderstanding focus – is created using stacks of photos that have been taken over the span of three minutes.

Subjects were asked to stay as still as possible during that time, but the photos reveal just how much we actually shift, even if we think we haven’t moved. The effect is the perception of a 3D image in which the subject’s faces appear to be in constant motion. The aim of the project was to explore the idea of time and human fragility.
