At first glance, the photos comprising this series look like simple sandwich pictures. On looking closer, however, we gradually notice that these works must have been created in some other way. In reality, this part of Gerhard Lang's physiognomic studies involves a projection technique that allows him to project directly onto human faces. The resulting hybrid beings exist only for a matter of seconds. Lang records them with photography and 16mm film.
Lang uses a slightly different projection technique in his work on landscape. See Work: New Reports from the Countryside. Gerhard Lang’s Landscape Performances with Slide Projectors
