Emotionally Charged Portraits of Faceless Shadows

Paris-based photographer Alexandre Bordereau (aka aRe-y0u-iN) features silhouettes of anonymous people artistically adorned with splashes of white paint for his B&W Portrait series.

Whether they are in a state of frustration, solitude, calm, or passion, Bordereau makes it clear through his meticulous manipulation and his models’ composition. As he previously told us, “I try to show that it is possible to express an emotion without the expressions of a face.”
