Celebrity faces assembled from a mesmerizing mosaic

Photographer Maurizio Galimberti is a master of polaroid photography. In his series "Celebrities", he presents unique portraits consisting of a "grid" of individual photos. These mosaic paintings, depicting such stars as George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Benicio del Torro and Catherine Zeta-Jones, are a poetic expression of the author's vision, breaking the typical idea of a photo portrait.
Galimberti describes the process of his work as creating music with the help of photography.
Rows of repeating heads, hands, and faces turn into organized chaos within a geometric structure. Galimberti deliberately arranges the images in such an order that all of them together lead the viewer's gaze to the central point where the main focus is on the subject's face.
The audience is invited to make the elements of the mosaic into a single picture in their head, as if collecting a virtual puzzle. As a result, Galimberti's portraits become their own unique experience for everyone who sees them.
