Everybody has weird passport photos. Although we try to make a poker face, it is impossible to stand without making any mimics. London-based visual artist Max Siedentopf thought about it when he sat in front of the camera for a passport photo. He started to think all of the weird restraints on a small image without glasses, patterns, a smile or anything interesting. Therefore, he created an alternate reality for these small images. He found a cast of friends and strangers to take weird passport photos with the rest of the body.

The participants are straight-faced and rigid but below they had interesting scenes. You can see more examples from his Passport Photos series on his Instagram
