Reconstructed Portraiture Project

This reclusive, gentle giant emerged from seclusion to become the latest subject for my Reconstructed Portraiture project. Two separate 16×120 B&W portraits of retired wrestler, Paco Libre, were custom printed in my darkroom then hand cut and woven together to form one portrait. Since the process alters the face, the man behind the mask is still a mystery to those who view the finished piece, which has already sold.
