I've always loved the work of Arcimboldo ever since studying him at college.

His most famous work for me is his 4 images of the seasons:





It was one of my earlier ideas inspired by this work to create my own composite portrait using projections. I did an early sketch during a staff meeting:

The subject is photographed in various poses which are then comped together and projected upon the sitter.

I created a rough mock up using images from a book from the library "Nudes in Motion"

It was an idea that I'd had but forgotten about. Whilst at the Tillmans exhibition last week though I saw his Arcimboldo inspired image and it brought it all back to me.
