The brain child of Berlin-based photographer Sebastian Bieniek, ‘Double Faced’ is a series of photos that brings the bizarre, blocked and other-worldly faces of Picasso’s cubist paintings to life. Following the everyday routine of the double faced girl, Bieniek has created a series of curious and thought provoking photos that allude to the duplicitousness of human nature and challenge our ideas of beauty while using only lipstick, a willing model and eye pencil as his transformational tools.

An idea born from ritualistic family bonding time, Bieniek says he got his twisted faces idea when he helped his son out of the bath. According to Bieniek, inspiration struck when his son looked into the mirror as wet hair covered one of his eyes, and said “Dad, look my face moved.” From here, the double faced dame seeped into Bieniek’s consciousness, eventually becoming a character who has so far been featured in a series of 22 photos, doing everything from drinking coffee to riding the subway to bathing.
