Bosnian artist Emir Šehanović handmade these collage portraits. I’m merely speculating, but it appears that, in addition to tedious layering, he burns holes in the top layer. It creates a fascinating organic shape with charred edges. The monochromatic photos are colored brilliantly from the layers below.
