Flóra Borsi’s animal self-portraits

Forming a likeness between the animal kingdom and the human form, hungarian artist flora borsi has formed the series ‘animeyed’, which creates curious hybrid beings from two different species. The collection of self-portraits sees Borsi situated side-by-side six separate creatures: a cat, dove, blowfish, goldfish, snake and hare. For each composition, Borsi matches her hairstyle, makeup, and eye color to match the characteristics of each animal, dying her hair orange to mimic the hue of a goldfish and painting her face snow white to match the texture of a dove. As the artist stares at the camera facing frontwards, one of the animals conceals part of her face, matching their own eye above where hers would be revealed.


Through the project Animeyed, Flóra intends to explore human identity and the relationship between animals and people.
“I love animals and the beauty that they give us. Most people appreciate pretty faces or bodies, but species other than humans are forgotten.”
“I wanted to show that we are very similar to them and at the same time how special they are. I wanted to draw attention to their unique look and the importance of their existence. They all have the same right to live freely on this planet as we do.”
“I realized how perfect nature is. I’m trying to create images that look unedited, even though there’s a lot of post-production behind it.”
