The two artist collective known as Nerhol is made up of Yoshihisa Tanaka and Ryuta Iiada.  Their work focuses on pulling two dimensional work into the three dimensional realm.  These portraits, rather than a single image, are actually piles of photographs.  The subjects were asked to sit still for three minutes while a camera took photo after photo.  The photographs were then stacked and cut to reveal the numerous layers of portraits.  This layering effect reveals the subtle movements of each subject as if it were slowly warping a single image.   [via]
