About Face

I suspect the photography of Maria Przybysz has been haunting me in my sleep, because it's been at the back of my mind since I spotted it on Design Scene back in March. I thought I'd keep today's post short and sweet, but suddenly I was reminded of the eerily beautiful illustrations of Bec Winnell (one recently featured on the cover of Peppermint Mag!) and next thing you know I'm digging through Solve Sundsbo's impressive (and vast!) portfolio to find a few of my favourites there too. So much for an early night!

All three have an uncanny ability to capture the beauty of female faces in new, unexpected ways...and considering we're constantly bombarded with billboards and advertisements showing us what beauty should (apparently!) look like, it's almost a relief to see a few alternative perspectives.


This weekend I'm going in search of the latest Numéro just so I can hold Solve Sundsbo's stunning cover (NSFW) in my own little hands. That is of course once I've caught up on emails and comments and the growing pile of work on my desk. Eek!

I love her style - romantic, slightly vintage, or pure modern. Evey photo has captured the true beauty of a face. Thanks for sharing!

I love the first three, they are mesmorising. The second picture, the woman's eyes are so haunting and draw you in.
Thanks for posting
