Porto, Portugal-based José Cardoso has been working on a new series of headshots where he tries to explore not only the boundaries between classic photography and basic sculpting but also digital and analog image making.

Cardoso, who creates under the name “Ze,” has his subjects squish and twist an orange-sized piece of the modeling dough into any shape they chose. Then he photographs their creations and photoshops them onto portraits of those individuals.
