Photographer and makeup artist Nadia Wicker has a beautiful series of abstract photographs titled Ursides in which she captures self-portraits in which her face looks like exploding fireworks. While her method is secret, Wicker says that she uses her experience with makeup — rather than Photoshop — to create the photos.
Any idea how the images were created? You can see the rest of the series here.
