ELEMENTS is a new project by Slovakia-based photographer Maria Svarbova. Each of the portraits in the series features some physical, real-world element that has been introduced to add a layer of 3D complexity to the underlying 2D image.
“I focus on portraits in this series,” Svarbova tells PetaPixel. “I used different materials to work on photography, for example: fire, air, water, etc. All are portraits of young people, but everyone is personal and different.”
