drawn by the motivational words of author wayne dyer who said ‘if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change‘, cape town based photographer anelia loubser has completed a series of portraits that compel an usual and intent review. ‘alienation’ warps the perception of the human face by flipping it upside down, achieving weird and wonderful reinterpretations of the subject’s features. in this peculiar universe of oddly proportioned people, eyebrows become patches of whisker-like fur, arched forehead wrinkles visualize as wry smiles and scars describe distinctly disconnected noses.

loubser wants the audience to ‘be introduced to the alienated being inside us all, where disconcerting beauty emerges. the work is on the one hand strangely aesthetic, on the other hand mysteriously eerie.’
