Miranda & Malkavitch, December 2006 Photographed by Dietmar Busse

I have admired the photography of Dietmar Busse for some time now. I think I first saw one of his images in 2007.  I love his portraits of other artists. There is something quietly magical and subversive at play. The use of layering images is something done quite frequently, but the way Dietmar applies it to the work is much more interesting compared to what I’ve grown accustomed. So, no words. Just some of his images.

You can explore his work for yourself on his website:

The images of Dietmar Busse linger in my mind later. They are rather haunting. I love the work…
