Surreal Portraits by Aisha Zeijpvelds
Unusual and surrealist images, this is what the protographer Aisha Zeijpvelds, based in Amsterdam presents here with a portrait series. What is particular is the directing, which appears like totally zany. Some of the models have limbs split into two as while some others have the eyes hidden by a mirror or by a smoke heap.
I can’t wait for it to heal in a couple weeks so I can color it and show my grandma’s artwork in its full glory.
Go away so I can be myself.

'Then the pied windflowers and the tulip tall,
And narcissi, the fairest among them all,
Who gaze on their eyes in the stream’s recess,
Till they die of their own dear loveliness.’
