DOUG KEYES

PORTAIT

2012 – 2014

The genesis for this series was the Chuck Close catalog, that Keyes photographed in 1998, for the widely applauded Collective Memory series. With this image, multiple exposures resulted in two portraits that represented Close’s body of work. Keyes now continues this focus on portraits made by other artists and documentarians.

Sourcing images from books and the internet, and often inspired by portraits experienced in person, Keyes selects images that collectively create an overall representation of each artist’s portraiture work. The resulting photographs reshape the work of such iconic names as Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Martin Schoeller and Frida Kahlo.
