For the past couple of years, photographer Klaus Pichler has been interested in the subject of costumes. The subject has traditions in many of the world’s cultures, and some people spend great deals of time and money in order to obtain extremely elaborate outfits.
Between 2011 and 2013, Pichler visited many of these costume owners in their homes, asking them to pose among the spaces and objects of their life while taking on the appearance of their “alter egos.” The resulting series is titled “Just the Two of Us.”
You can view the rest of the images in the series over on Pichler’s website.
P.S. You might recognize Pichler’s name from our previous feature of his decaying food project.
