These Pictures of People with Half-Faced Illusions Are Twisting My Brain

By Casey Chan on at

This photography illusion, made with a Samsung L100 camera and Photoshop, turns half of a person's face into a picture of their profile too. Are they looking straight at you? Or looking to the side? I can't freaking tell and it's giving me brain sores.

The project, titled 1/2, was created by Venezuelan student Jesús González Rodríguez. He tweaked layers in Photoshop to create a mind trip of a photography series. Sometimes when I look hard enough, I convince myself that it's a profile picture. Then I blink and re-focus and it turns into half a face. WHAT IS GOING ON. I can't think about it anymore BUT I CAN'T LOOK AWAY. [Jesús González Rodríguez's Flickr via My Modern Met]
