In her compelling series Animeyed, Budapest-based artist Flora Borsi combines the art of self-portraits with a fun quirkiness that turns each image into a work of surrealism.
The idea for Animeyed came about when Borsi tried to take a selfie with her dog. After taking that photograph, she realized that the image showed her dog’s eye looked just like one of her own. This single photography was the inspiration (and the trigger) in making her Animeyed series.
From scaly serpents wrapped around her neck to puffer fish blowing up beside her, Flora Borsi went all out in finding the perfect creatures for completing her photo series.
Now, if you find yourself believing that every animal was in the studio with Flora, you’re mistaken. But the techniques Flora uses ensure that each image looks as natural as possible. In fact, one of her main goals is to make images look real and as though they are unedited snapshots.
Since finding her passion for photography, Flora Borsi has exhibited her work internationally with solo exhibitions in Europe and across the USA. She has also taken part in the Continental Shift group exhibition at Saatchi Gallery.
