Photographer Flora Borsi creates surreal and uncanny portraits of manipulated bodies.

Flora Borsi and the photography of the physically impossible
Budapest - MAY 20, 2013

More and more young artists are turning to surrealism in order to explore society, the body and the relationships between reality and the image. Flora Borsi, a 19 year old photographer from Hungary, is an example of this. Her images convey the possibilities of manipulation of the physical presence, creating photographs where reality and fiction come together to create impossible representation of the body.

With hints of surrealism and aesthetics close to the notion of uncanny, Borsi often portrays herself in intricate self-portraits that cause a feeling of uncertainty in the viewer. Through deformations, conceptual narrative or direct quotes of other artworks, Borsi has created a personal universe worth visiting.
