If the essence of a director could be captured in a single frame, it might look something like Julian Rentzsch's composite portraits of Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, and Martin Scorsese. The illustrator, who in the past drew Ai Weiwei and Jurgen Mayer H., among others, worked with independent Hamburg designers Stellavie to collage the three auteurs' classic characters, camera shots, and quotes together with their iconic faces, creating black-and-white snapshots of everything that made their films so great.


"When I'm making a film, I'm the audience." -Martin Scorsese

"This whole world is wild at heard and weird on top." -David Lynch
