Doppelganger presents current trends in capturing the visual identity of human beings. Each of its seven chapters explores a different creative approach: Embody, Dissolve, Appeal, Reshape, Perform, Deform, and Escape.

The book is a compelling collection of permutations of the outer human shell created with costumes and masks as well as photo-technical and artistic manipulation. While inventing, enhancing, obscuring, or altering identities, the images play with and often obliterate classical proportions and visual traditions. In doing so, they reveal further possibilities for what can be considered beautiful and fashionable.
