Photographer Aliya Naumoff creates celebrity portraits with a difference. In her show Perceptions which kicks off tonight at the Fuse Gallery in New York she captures icons from music—like Iggy Pop, Lady Gaga, Karen O, and Bat For Lashes—and turns them into interactive stickers that "allows the viewer to explore the distance between the intimate portrait and how it is perceived through the media."

Viewers are invited to touch the plastic, oil-filled pictures that are housed in various-shaped frames and poke through the distorted layers to reveal the celebrity hiding beneath. "This tactile interaction mirrors the desire that people have to touch and know celebrities, while only being familiar with a fabricated image." says Naumoff.
