Van Gogh’s Famous Self-Portrait Morphs into a Photograph in a Short Video


What would a Van Gogh painting look like as a life-like image? What would Van Gogh himself look like — not as a series of impressionistic swirls, but as a common photograph? Lithuanian architect and photographer Tadao Cern wanted to find out — so he digitally recreated one of the artist’s most iconic self-portraits as a modern portrait.

Here is a process video of how he has done it!

After taking his picture, Cern devoted a day to adjusting colors and exposure in Lightroom and fine tuning a host of details in Photoshop. Suddenly, the similarities were uncanny.

The result is haunting.

Compare that to the artist’s actual self-portrait:
