Photographer Imagines What the Subjects in Abstract Paintings Would Look Like IRL

For her series of Photoshopped images titled “The Real Life Models,” 19-year-old Hungarian photographer Flora Borsi created a set of heavily post-processed self-portraits that imagine what real life models of strange abstract paintings would have looked like.

For the series, Borsi picked abstracts by greats such as Kees van Dongen, Gelber Narrenhut and Picasso, and then tried to help us visualize what the models of these strange paintings would have looked like if they had existed in the real world and not only in the artists’ strange imaginations.

For each photo, she painstakingly found the proper clothing and accessories before modeling them herself. Once the photo was taken, she would upload it into Photoshop and replace her shape and features with those of the distorted subject in the painting:

Several sources are already comparing her work to that of Spanish-based photographer Eugenio Recuenco, who used Picasso’s paintings as inspiration for a creative fashion series. And while Borsi and Recuenco did both draw from the same well of inspiration, Borsi’s photos take a more whimsical swing at abstract art.

To see more from Borsi and/or purchase prints from the “Real Life Models” series, head over to her gallery or check out her Bēhance page here.
