Io + Gatto

Photographs of Wanda Wulz are extremely rare, as in the late 1930s she turned to portrait painting.

 

WANDA WULZ ‘Io + Gatto’ (Selbstporträt / Self-portrait), 1932

Wanda Wulz was na italian experimental photographer.

One great example of her works is the self-portrait merged with a portrait of a cat. She created this striking composite by printing two negatives—one of her face, the other of the family cat—on a single sheet of photographic paper, evoking by technical means the seamless conflation of identities that occurs so effortlessly in the world of dreams.
