Journalists are people of words, both spoken and written. In addition to his work as a journalist, Iskandar Khatloni was a well known poet, so his connection to words goes even further.
This portrait started with a word cloud—a computer generated representation of one of Khatloni’s poems. This word cloud was then combined with a hand drawn, computer-colored image of the journalist. Then, using Photoshop, the words of the poem were distorted to appear as if they were projected on the portrait.
