Faces 5 is a 2009 series of portraits by Utrecht photographer Ashkan Honarvar in which he used existing pictures of young soldiers with facial mutilations and added candy and ice cream to photo-manipulate faux wounds on their faces.
Titus Verheijen says of Honarvar’s work:
The body, torn by acts of war, exploited by the sex industry or used as a tool for seeking identity, is the focal point of his work. This constitutes a search for a universal representation of the evil latent in every human, providing an opportunity for reflection. His aesthetic dissection has an intriguing macabre nature, which opens the images to interpretation.
