One artist's portraits are so good, we can barely look away.
Flóra Borsi, a self-taught artist and photographer from Hungary, created a photo series entitled ANIMEYED, in which she replaces one of her eyes with animals' eyes.
In each photo, Borsi stares directly at the camera while her animal subjects pose in profile. Nonetheless, it still appears as though Borsi looks at us with two bright, bold eyes.
In reference to this technique, Borsi's website explains:
"Her work often features the female body and she plays with hiding and revealing the eyes or face to leave only the feminine form, exploring questions of female representation and the relationship between body and self."
The photo series plays with multiple creatures including a goldfish, a dark green snake, a poised black cat, and a statuesque, white dove.
Among other awards, Borsi took first prize at the 2008 National Photography Award by NFÜ, was named a finalist in three categories at the 2014 World of Circus International Art Contest, and is the recipient of the 2015 Exposure Award for the Portraiture Collection.
Her work has been presented in exhibitions all over the world, from Budapest to Detroit to London, and The Louvre in Paris.
