The conceptual photographer Corinna Holthusen is known for her suspenseful portraits that mirror today's ideals of beauty and the artificiality associated with them. Her effect on us viewers is like an ambivalent tightrope walk between fascination and cringe. But how does this paradox arise? - Through a complex image editing process, Holthusen digitally superimposes a multitude of physiognomies and then processes them with analogue painting. By means of this sensitive media superimposition, artificial, new 'beings' are created from scratch. Studies of Humans and Dolls
