The portrait photographer Mathieu Stern is known far beyond the borders of his native France. The master experiments a lot, both with equipment and with subsequent image processing. Thanks to Photoshop and incredible imagination, the models of his photo shoots turn into fairy-tale heroes. Recently, he started an experiment that confirmed the truthfulness of the common phrase about the unique vision of the world through the eyes of different people.
To do this, Mathieu Stern organized an unusual project, the result of which he published on his instsgram page. He invited 16 artists to whom he offered to redraw his works in his own style. As a result, an extensive selection of double portraits was collected, designated by the hashtag #DrawThisInYourStyle (draw the same thing in your style).
The artists preserved the "zest" of each portrait, at the same time highlighting the main features or qualities of the hero. The redraws turned out to be no worse than the original. Artistic co-creation demonstrated a completely different vision of the same subject. Many subscribers of the photographer-enthusiast left likes, expressed a desire to have the same portrait.
