Helmar Lerski

All the photos are from here
Helmar Lerski is renowned for his singular approach to portraiture. Instead of attempting to reveal the unique characteristics of his subject. Lerski translated the physiogonomy of the face into a sculptural surface onto which he projected lights and shadows to dramatic effect.
From here
I discovered a number of amazing photographers that were new to me, at the Street & Studio exhibition. This one really stood out, the images in the gallery are approx 10 inces by 8 inches and pack a tremendous punch.
