In this collection, I explore AI-generated Portraits that attempt to mimic or imitate photography. Yes, you read that right, AI Portraits straight from the bot’s mouth.
As a photographer, I wanted to create a collection of AI Portraits that challenged perception. How close could I get to photography? How close could I get to awakening the artificial soul?
OK, yes, I did engage in some light contrast edits or minor fixes. For a few of them, I employed photoshop to get the aesthetic I was after but nothing too crazy. It’s mostly just the AI and my fluffy word prompts.
This was a fun experiment for me. If you are looking for conversations regarding AI, the good, the bad, and the controversial, please see this post: AI Photography – Exploring AI-generated pictures.
Artificial is made up of 5 unique Series within the collection. You can find the series listed under attributes in each individual piece’s metadata.
