Birthe Piontek

Birthe Piontek is a fine art photographer who lives in Vancouver, Canada. She describes her photography as an exploration of the individual and is interested in the concept of Self. Her main focus is portrait photography but she also utilizes other art forms like installation and sculpture to investigate the essence of portraiture and to what degree identity can be visualized. The Project Mimesis focuses on our tireless attempts to capture the essence of an individual in a photograph. By changing and reinterpreting the original representations, the viewer is invited to look beyond the surface of an image to discover the hidden and complex layers of our identity. © All Images
