Faces of Curaçao

To see something when there is nothing requires a different way of looking at it: you have to really allow your eyes some time.

You will get to an new layer of observation when you focus on something that you would normally just pass by. Hidden images will rise to the surface. A few years back, the beach of Curaçao gave multi-disciplinary artist Mike Redman a similar experience.

On one of the beaches of Curaçao, Mike was admiring the view, when suddenly he felt like he was the one being looked at. But it wasn’t a person that was staring at him; it was a piece eroded coral, washed up on the shore, that clearly had the shape of a skull. From this moment on Mike walked the beach with a different outlook; he suddenly came across more and more faces. This resulted in an interesting series of photos that were internationally exhibited. It is important to know that the compositions are not arranged or edited; the faces that are visible, are photographed exactly as Mike found them.
