This “paired volume”, beautifully designed by Elliott Bryce Foulkes, features Cherine Fahd’s photographic studies, ‘Shadowing Portraits’ (2014-2016) and ‘You Look Like a…’ (2016-2017). It includes a critical essay by Blair French – Director Curatorial and Digital, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, contributions from the ‘Shadowing’ participants, as well as Fahd’s own notations on the processes of making portraits.

A ‘Portrait is a Puzzle’ is in itself an artwork; a pairing of two photographic series that invites the reader to turn the book over and around, to reach two endings in the middle and to interrogate the function of a portrait and the people it depicts, as an infinite and unsolvable puzzle.
