Welcome to


Remember me?

Well this is not me.
But you are looking at me and you’re seeing something of me in another. And something of others in me.

This is TransparentFaces.

This person doesn't exist

Transparent Faces is a loud thought about today's photographic hability to change the concepts of perception and reality.

This person doesn't exist

An ongoing project from photographer Alberto G. Puras and creative consultant Lorenzo Bennassar about the creation of unexisting people's portraits.

This person doesn't exist

Through the use of a carefull lighting and a refined photographic retouching we have been abble to blend different people's faces to create almost perfectly realistic portraits of human beeings that don't exist.

This person doesn't exist

Transparent Faces is a project originally conceived as a research exercise. It could easily end up as part of the next advertising campaign of telecomunications brand, hanging on a contemporary art gallery or, why not, kept in the “never accomplished projects” drawer.

For now, it's also here.
