London photographer Roman Sakovich has hit a nerve – many nerves that is, including mine – with his recent portrait series titled “Half”. Thru some simple but astute post production, Sakovich combines the two halves of a person…on the left ‘before’ addiction & abuse, and on the right, after, at full throttle. Certainly the studio photos have been enhanced, but the results don’t waver. Simple photographs, compelling + robust narrative. Signs of good art. #Respect. Great series, Roman.

Sadly, I found these quite banal. Without drugs …. wear suit. after drugs … denim jacket or tack top. The apparel of those druggy guys are what I wear most of the time. And occassionally, I don’t shave! I guess if I deny any addiction, I’m simply ling to myself!
nice tnx u
I am not sure if I can call these pictures beautiful but they describe pretty well what drugs can do very quickly and especially if you are living on the streets.
