The latest in family portraitureBy http://profile.typepad.com/1237764140s22740 // November 22, 2012 in Design
If you and your family are in Tokyo for the Thanksgiving holiday, consider heading for Shibuya-ku to have your family scanned for a 3D printed portrait!
Here's the process, as explained on the Omote 3D website.
I thought it would be fun to compare a sample portrait from the Omote site (it's the three figurines standing in a Joseph-Cornell like shadow box) with family portraits in other media.
The painting, Portrait of the Coozzadini Family (1584), is by Lavina Fontina.
The daguerreotype is of the Adams family, from 1846.
