BEAUTY: Projection and Photography--Clément Lesaffre

For his Racines (or Roots) series, French photographer Clément Lesaffre takes wonderful, intimate portrait photos of people's faces and then projects them onto trees at night--often during a full moon--and the results are quite moving, evoking not only the relationship between humans and land or place, but also of the ephemeral nature of humans in the face of the universe...

Here he is at work on one of his pieces, projecting a face onto a rock and taking a long-exposure photo.

And here is his Self Portrait. With eyes closed. Poignant.
