A ‘Portrait is a Puzzle’ is a photobook in two parts; a pairing of two photographic series that invites the reader to turn the book over and around, to reach two endings in the middle and to interrogate the function of a portrait and the people it depicts, as an infinite and unsolvable puzzle. It features Cherine Fahd’s photographic studies, ‘Shadowing Portraits’ (2014-2016) and ‘You Look Like a…’ (2016-2017). It includes a critical essay by Blair French – Director of Carriageworks, then Director Curatorial and Digital, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, as well as contributions from the portraits' participants, as well as Fahd’s own notations on the processes of making portraits. It is published by M.33 Melbourne.
