 Mysterious Self-Portraits of Rachel Baran.

These beautiful photographs of a solitary female in an imaginative world are the work of the exceptionally talented Rachel Baran. Each photograph is conceptually based and tells a truly unique story.

Baran uses herself as a model and then makes slight manipulations in Photoshop to create fascinating details that completely change the image and push it outside the sphere of reality. Fire springs gracefully from outstretched arms, a bloody hand print hangs in the sky, and a lit tongue melts away like a wax candle. In these unconventional self-portraits, Baran perfectly creates a mysterious alter-ego for herself with an incredible, unknown world to explore.
