Human Photo Copy Machine: A Series of Photorealism Portraits

Lacey Greve, M1, Class of 2022

I essentially am a human photo copy machine. Its funny because I lack really any formal training or knowledge of art. What I’m good at is looking at something and seeing it for what is really there, shapes and shades that eventually make a complete picture. If you put the right shapes and shades together then in essence that is photorealism. It’s a huge challenge and I think thats my favorite part of doing it. It started as a hobby as a kid but I found out I was pretty good at it and ended up doing freelance work in high school and college. In hindsight I think it shaped my brain in a pretty cool way because as an adult I have a very high attention to detial and I think it trains your brain to look at things in a different way.
