Animeyed: Human-Animal Hybrid Portraits By Flóra Borsi

Animeyed: Human-Animal Hybrid Portraits By Flóra Borsi

Hungarian photographer Flóra Borsi is not your average self-portrait artist. Many of us are satisfied with the regular glamorous makeup and looks, but Borsi shapes her own perception of the perfect selfie through her exceptional creativity. A while ago, Flóra took a picture along with her dog in which the eyes of the dog overlapped with her own, creating a feeling as though this was an eye of hers. This was the initial trigger to create the "Animeyed" project, a series of self-portraits with different animals whose facial features overlap with her own, giving an illusion of one, common eye.

The idea of the set is to demonstrate the uniqueness and beauty of the animals and the similarities we share with them. The artist has chosen animals such as a cat, goldfish, blowfish, dove, etc., for her human-animal hybrid self-portraits. She creates hypnotizing atmosphere by thoughtfully selecting color schemes and details. In all of the images, her eyes and those of the animals are color-matched. She spent nearly 20 hours to develop each of the pieces -- from hair and makeup to stock photo research and retouching -- which involve a lot of manipulation.

This is a great example of creativity and determination. Enjoy the set and don’t forget to check the full collection along with Borsi's other remarkable work at her Instagram Facebook, Behance pages.

Beautiful ! Thanks for sharing !

This works remind me of the one done by Mario Cravo Neto. Check him out.

thanks for introducing to this artist, the pictures are striking to the core, although it is so realistic, one of the differences between these two artists. The human and animal concept seems to be around all the time and I like exploding different visions. Might do a post on this photographer one day, once I get closer look at his vision.

=) Looking forward to read it. BTW let me know if I can be of any help, I know a bit about his work.

And I agree with you. MCN explores the realistic. One of his work consists in transliterate African religions into imagery. It is so powerful!

killer stuff

Highly creative imagery, I love these!
