The TWIN Black & White portraits of Steve Jobs
Two mosaic portraits of Steve Jobs made out of Apple products for Panorama weekly magazine in Italy.
These are my latest twin portraits of Steve Jobs. I created them for Panorama, Italy's Number 1 weekly magazine.
The creative director of the magazine requested a 'white on white' portrait where Steve Jobs was to be illustrated with all of Apple's white products. Of course I didn't want to use a grayscale version of the products but create the Black & White feeling using the less possible color. I had to turn off some monitors but I haven't changed the actual color of the products. From around 300 of them I created the white mosaic first. Then I became curious with what a black version would look like.
The Panorama team liked them both. They included the initial portrait on the latest cover of the financial section - Panorama Economy - and the black one is used for the internal pages of the magazine.
This is the white version...
...and this is the black version.
