The Project:

The aim of One World with Many Faces is to create a record of the faces of people from 12 major cities on four continents.

In each city I take photographs and short videos of 720 city-dwellers in order to capture 8,000 faces from all over the world. All the people are photographed in the same container, in front of the same backdrop, and with the same lighting. In this way the inhabitants of 12 capital cities from different continents come together in the same room and under the same circumstances.

From the video material I produce a 24-hour video, in which every face appears for 10 seconds. For each city I also print a book with the faces the of the respective city's inhabitants: Vienna, Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Panama City, Antwerpen, Lodz, Tokyo, etc...

As a result archives will be created which can be made generally accessible in public museums and galleries.

Due to the nature of this project the FACES pages will take a moment to load!
