Series of 48 "Doublefaced" photographs by Sebastian Bieniek made in 2015

"Doublefaced 2015" is a series of 48 photographs from the oeuvre of Bieniek-Face by Sebastian Bieniek (B1EN1EK). It's a continuation of the "Doublefaced 2013" series, that Sebastian Bieniek started two years before.

The first (2013) serial contained 52 photographs, therefore the 2015 series starts with the photography no. 53 ("Doublefaced No. 53") and ends with the "Doublefaced No. 100".

Photographs were made in Honk Kong, Paris, Munich, Berlin and Italy

In opposite to "Doublefaced 2013", where the models came from the personal sourrounding of Sebastian Bieniek, the "Doublefaced 2015" models are professionals and celebrities from Honk Kong, Austria, Russia, Germany Poland, Italy, Greece, Brauzil and Japan.

One can say "Doublefaced 2015" is more international, more professional and less documantery than "Doublefaced 2013".

One can also say that there is no "The Doublefaced Girl story" included, because there are to many different girls and also man to pretend there would be a main character with a certain story like it was in 2013 by he media claimed.


Also "Doublefaced 2015" were run by some topics like transgender for example (after the VOGUE NY, asked S. Bieniek for some "Doublefaced" pictures to be included in it's story of the same topic) or the theme of "hair" that was requisted by the SZ Magazin (South Germanys largest magazine) or a shooting with the Hong Kong star Joey Yung that was requested by the Hong Kong based Broadway agancy, or the photographs that were made for the Jacquemus show at the Paris Fashion Week 2015, or finally the last photography (no. 100) that was made for the Elpris music video in Italy.

Sebastian Bieniek made in this actually two years his experiences with magazines, musicians, fashion and agancies. Bieniek's Doublefaced was after two years - although the terrain shifted - still a hype.
