Below there is a sample composition of rephotographed and scanned portraits of the Re-portrait Yourself work. The piece will show double portraits and they will present two colour spectrums â?? one based on the low quality re-photographing and another relied on the scanned output. Both versions are printed on the portable Polaroid printer with a Zink technology â?? no ink just crystals.
On 14th May I do a project based on re-photographing portraits called Re-portrait Yourself. You are very welcome to contribute by coming over to the X Marks The B??kship but if you can not make it you can still be a part of it by sending a scan of your photo from the following sources:Â passport, ID cards, driving license or diploma or any kind of certificate. Please e-mail your photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org Below there is more details about the project.

One big collective portrait will be created on Saturday 14 May at X Marks The B??kship. The Re-portrait Yourself event is about appropriating existing photographs from various documents and creating a new photographic work out of them.
Everybody is welcome to participate – all you need to do is bring a photograph of yourself, a partner or friend.Â This photograph should be taken from the following sources:Â passport, ID cards, driving license or diploma or any kind of certificate.
The photograph you submit will be re-photographed using a low quality mobile phone camera. It will then be printed out and used to create a spatial catalogue out of all re-photographed portraits.
The Re-portrait Yourself project focuses on portraits of yourself taken by others (or by an automated photo booth) which have then been used to represent you in your official documents. The more images you provide the better. Images of you taken in different periods of your life are also welcome.
(Please be aware that results of your participation could be used in the future projects or public presentations.)
