One of the highlights of a recent visit to Berlin was a visit to Schwules Museum in Schöneberg where we caught the exhibition of the work of Stefan Thiel.

The exhibition — 100 Berlin Based Men — showcases a series created by Thiel where he has used paper cut-outs to create sexed-up portraits in silhouette.

For this series — created between 2011–2015 — Thiel used a photograph as his base, and then cut his silhouettes from black paper.

The results are stunning.
