The extreme realism of these virtual faces, Brenda Menges

Flipping through the pages of Flickr is hard to remain indifferent to the photographs of Brenda Menges.

She is a professional photographer in Second Life®, who sells her photographic services to those who wish to have a beautiful profile picture or remember crucial moments in (virtual) life.

The aspect that I think is impressive is the extreme realism of the portraits that Brenda Menges realizes.

Beyond the technical and use of graphics programs aspects, I appreciate her way of “turning a virtual face in a human face.” A face that conveys the fears, weaknesses, and passions. The subjects of Brenda undergo not only a graphic treatment, but a “humanization” through their ability to communicate love, sensuality, tenderness, fear, or loss.

This aspect of her photographs leads me to consider her an artist because she is not merely a “graphic designer” but a communicator through avatars portraits in SL®.
