Portraits can be made using different techniques, from painting through photographing and sculpting. But have you ever heard of paper sculpture portraits?
Alma Haser’s photographs add another dimension to two-dimensional portraits, using paper-folding techniques, collages, and mixed media. Born into an artistic family in the Black Forest in Germany, she was immersed in art from an early age.
“My father is a painter and sculptor and my mother, when we were living in Germany, was doing pottery, but has moved on to first mixed media and then photography, which inspired me I think,” she shared with Plastik Magazine.
Now based in London, she admits that her interest with photography begun when she was a little girl. “My first ever camera was a Box Brownie, which I was given when I was about seven,” she shared. “I used to set up scenes with my dolls and photograph them. And at this point, my mother was doing photography and had a darkroom, which I found extremely interesting, and used to develop my own pictures.”
