Roni Horn is an artist of many talents. Although perhaps best known for her photography, Horn creates sculptures, installations and pieces that are text-based. One of her most compelling works is entitled Portrait of an Image and is comprised of 100 photos of French actress Isabelle Huppert. Horn shot twenty groups of five photos, each group representing a character portrayed by Huppert in one of her films. Each picture displays a personality that exists only on film. Huppert is devoid of make-up, yet through subtle changes in expression the identity changes every time. Beautiful photographs.
