Creative Portraits That Add Real World Elements to the Frame


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.”

ELEMENTS is an ongoing project, so Svarbova is slowly adding new works to it over time. You can find more of the photographer’s work on her website, Instagram, Behance, and Facebook.
