About the project:
Universe of One is an ambitious portrait project by artist and photographer Cheyne Gallarde. It’s an ever-expanding catalog of characters all played by one man. Using only makeup, wardrobe and lighting tricks, Cheyne transforms himself into a rainbow of people, each with their own personalities and presence.
Universe of One was inspired by the work of Cindy Sherman. It is an attempt to connect humanity in an artistic and conceptual way, by examining how we are different, yet so similar in many ways.
