Stereotypes - photos to mix/match

"Adapting a common children's book device of horizontally splitting pages in half in order to create cartoon hybrids of various animals, Stereotypes presents visitors with 20 (split) head-and-shoulders thumbnails of men, women and one child of various races, lifestyles, and, shall we say, 'fashion senses' - all of which can generate a full-sized image on the same page.

To the right of the thumbnails is a 'starting image' (a randomly chosen, full-sized version of one of the thumbnails), and from this point the visitor simply clicks the top or bottom half of the various thumbnails to start mixing and matching pieces in the full sized portrait - creating some amusing, surprising, and even mildly disturbing, combinations. As well as manually manipulating the pairings, visitors can also click on a random generation button, or play a continuing stream of combinations in a slide show.

Apart from the amusement and potential enlightenment that might be derived from this site, Stereotypes also represents some impressive photographic manipulation. While not all the top/bottom matches are absolutely seamless, most are, and such a good fit across so many different facial shapes and textures is impressive - as is finding an appropriate "middle tone" to represent all the subjects' skin color."

Hi CJ,

You find the wierdest sites. Love this one. I agree with you about the difficulty in matching all the different types and shapes of face. It must of taken quite some time to set this one up.

Very impressive site! The photos are fantastic and how you are able to almost seamlessly mix and match the tops and bottoms is truly brilliant work. I agree with Gary that this must have taken some serious time to set-up.

Nice find, CJ!
