Not A Photograph

Empathy evoking portraits created by custom AI data model

What is artificial and what is real?

How much empathy can an image generated by a machine evoke? The project “Not A Photograph” invites you to find answers to these questions.
The fish seller from the weekly market, the student next door, the pensioner from the park and many more – the portraits are as diverse as society itself, showing people of different origins, ages and professional groups. 

None of the portraits are photographs of a real person. The artist Arup J. Paul created these images using the latest generative AI technology and a data model created specifically for this purpose. Through empathy-evoking portraits, he would like to draw attention to the possibilities of generative AI and initiate a dialogue about the social effects of generative AI, especially in the visual field.

They capture the essence of the characters and tell unspoken personal stories.
