Spotlight Feature: Henrique Stabile
Hi, I’m Henrique Stabile and I deconstruct cities.
What begun as part of my doctorate research became great passion later through the project #deconstructingcities which you can take a look here. It’s a very simple idea: to deconstruct cities using any mobile app or combination of apps to do so, that way anyone with a smartphone can be part of the project. The results are later directly uploaded to the deconstructingcities.tumblr.com Tumblr.
This photo is part of a series where I take a picture of myself and replace my face with the picture of a city. It’s called “city selfie” and represents the connection I have to NYC and the connections anyone can make with any city, it’s like we see it through ourselves. In this case I grabbed an awesome photo of NYC by @nilssonlee which he made available under Creative Commons license.
First I took a selfie with the regular iPhone camera and later I went after @nilssonlee ‘s photo.
The joining was made possible through the UnionApp, where I cut out my face and replaced it with the city. Adjusts like making my selfie picture less saturated and more contrasted were made using SnapSeed.
