At the Met, a Mix of Photographers

Karin Sander, "Olivier Renaud-Clement, 1:10," (1999-2000)

"Somewhat more profound are two toy-size figurines by Karin Sander that represent the art dealer Olivier Renaud-Clement and the writer Gordon Tapper. Ms. Sander created these portraits in a two-stage industrial process, taking digital pictures from different angles and then feeding the data into a model-making machine. The photograph becomes an intermediate stage between the real and the virtual, rather than an end in itself."
