Photography by Carlo Van de Roer, whose portraits are made using a Polaroid aura camera from the 1970s. The fluorescent colors are said to represent emotional feedback.

"The subject is connected to the camera by sensors measuring electromagnetic biofeedback. It translates these readings into information about the subject and how they are seen by the photographer and others -- suggesting the camera bypasses the control of the photographer and subject in making the portrait."

Definitely worth seeing in person. On exhibit at the M+B Gallery in Los Angeles til May 14th.
