“I know a 'face' where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
This shot communicates a lot of emotion through a melancholy colour scheme and a high key lighting technique showing a model with a somber facial expression. The use of a long exposure and a flash creates the illusion of multiple faces.
I really like this photo as it is not just disguising the person themselve but it is also disguising emotion that the girl is feeling. It almost gives the impression of an explosion of feeling and emotion. It can also present the feeling of insanity.
These are a series of collage/illustrations by Argentinian artist/graphic designer Laura Guarie. I find a lot of inspiration from the combination of the female heads and the thin sharp geometric lines.
