"Dough Portraits" is a new book by Soren Dahlgaard - a Danish artist who lives in Australia. Over seven years, he has been photographing portraits of people, where they have agreed to be transformed beyond recognition with a large lump of dough over the head.
It looks strange and super nerdy. But when you speak with the book's creator, Soren Dahlgaard, you find out that actually there is quite a bit of meaning to the madness. For Soren Dahlgaard, it's about the saying that "art must seduce", as he says: "Art should talk to you. It should start a conversation."
And this what a big lump of dough thrown in the face has turned out to be good at.
