The Bicameral Face is an adventure in portraiture showing the effect of the functions of the brain on the face.   Using digital photographs, I produced a totally right sided face and a totally left sided face along with the normal visage. This more clearly identified each subject’s personas. I am asking viewers to consider what the brain is doing within my 14 photographed subjects to create the facial differences (42 images). I referenced Julian Jaynes bicameral face theory as a springboard.
