…from portrait to self-portrait… Vol 1, by Antonio Nodar

In collaboration with Elsa Peretti Foundation
Since 1996 I’ve been taking B&W portraits of artists, and giving them a duplicated print of their portrait on which to create their self-portrait.
This album contains the portraits and self-portraits of 242 artists (from the over 900 portraits done till now) that feature in vol1.
The selection of artists is done by word of mouth, my personal likes or dislikes have no saying on the final list of artists,if they want to participate they are welcome
The inclusion on the Volumes is by arrival of self-portrait.
Book size 30x40cms, size A3 landscape
