Spotlight Feature: Henrique Stabile

Posted on by

This week for our biweekly joint feature with mobile photography community partner AMPt, we spoke with photographer, Henrique Stabile about his passion of deconstructing cities.



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 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.
