GUP Instagram Takeover: Alma Haser



From today until April 17, Alma Haser (1989, Germany) will be taking over GUP’s Instagram, posting from Hastings (East coast of England). Haser is most known for her carefully constructed portraiture, influenced by her background in fine art.

Expanding the dimensions of traditional portrait photography, the photographer uses inventive paper-folding techniques to create layers of intrigue around her subjects, manipulating the portraits into futuristic flattened-paper sculptures. During the takeover, Haser will be sharing images of her series Cosmic Surgery, Eureka Effect and Twins. Besides that, she will post some pictures of new projects that are not released yet. GUP featured Alma’s series Cosmic Surgery in GUP#36, the New Realities issue. This work was also published as an online portfolio on GUP.
