Photographer Alma Haser, takes over our Instagram account for a week in February 2016.
Born into an artistic family in the Black Forest, Germany, Alma Haser is now based in London and the East coast.
Specialising in carefully constructed portraiture influenced by her creativity and background in fine art, Alma creates striking work that catches the eye and captivates the mind. Expanding the dimensions of traditional portrait photography, Alma takes her photographs further, using inventive paper-folding techniques to create layers of intrigue around her subjects, manipulating their portraits into futuristic flattened-paper sculptures.
Here's a peek into the first edition of my #cosmicsurgery book which was released last summer and sold out in two days. I collaborated with the amazing designer @stanleyjamespress and writer @piersbizony to bring my Cosmic Surgery series alive in a pop-up photography book. #photoworksuk #photography #tb #almahaser #instagramtakeover
Shortlisted for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery in 2012 for her piece The Ventriloquist, a portrait of two childhood friends, Alma has gone on to win third place at the 2012 Foto8 Summer Show and then the Magenta Foundation’s Bright Spark Award in 2013 for her Cosmic Surgery; series. Her work has been exhibited worldwide and she is currently self-publishing her second edition of the Cosmic Surgery book.
