Photographer Flora Borsi has always been a super creative person, as a winner of the Photoshop 25 under 25 award, it’s easy to see why. Besides her surreal work, she recently released a new project called Animeyed: which combines animals and people into a single portrait. “I always wanted to do something with Animals, I just didn’t know how to express myself.” says Flora. “Once I tried to do a selfie with my dog, and his eyes were like one of mine. This amateur picture was the trigger to make Animeyed series with different species.”

The do this series, she took photos of herself with the matching hairstyle and makeup–which all took an hour. Each photos individual manipulation took around 20 hours for each photo. Plus she had to research animal photos to include in the composite.

“I observed the little details, and the most typical things on each species. The texture of the skin, fur, color, eyes.” says Flora about each manipulation. “I made a moodboard, I was inspired by makeup artists, and hairdressers earlier work found on web.” Flora plans on continuing the series and hopes to get it into a gallery some day.
