As a photographer Ulrike Kiese has consistently pushed the limits of portrait photography, taking it into another dimension. Inspired by a television broadcast on the topic, she discovered that it was possible to scan people’s faces and make tangible portraits of them using a 3D printer. Shortly thereafter, she realised her dream of bringing this concept to Switzerland. Working with 3D printers, the current pinnacle of the technological scene, requires the perfect blend of know-how, high-tech equipment and craftmanship – a code it seems Kiese has cracked.
