Juana Rodriguez / Hélène Barros


The word "silhouette" comes from Étienne de Silhouette, 18th century Controller-General of Finances under French king Louis XV. Depending on what you read, either he was known for his hobby of making silhouette portraits or people named the cheap form of portraiture after the famously cheap man (or maybe it was both). Well, he'd better tighten his purse strings even more because giving old Étienne a run for his money is Colombia's Juana Rodriguez, who makes a serious case for naming the silhouette after her.



Above, a version of her stacking rings with a hit of colour.
