Norwegian photographer, Ze Cardoso (aka Tomba Lobos), recently unveiled a series of unique portraits he’s been working on. Combining classic photography and sculpture, Cardoso creates a digital portrait of the subject, then sculpts play dough in unique shapes before adding it as the subject’s face in Photoshop. The resulting images are grotesque yet intriguing. Cardoso thinks of the project as a tribute to old school special effects, citing Cronenberg’s Videodrome and Chris Cunningham’s music video, Rubber Johnny, as influences.
