Flóra Borsi is a young fine art photographer from Hungary. She uses exquisite photo manipulation to create surreal images that are thematically focused on identity, relationships, emotions and dreams. Her immaculate technique and subtle conceptual ideas create beautiful evocations of universal emotions, from lust and desire to despair and loss.
In her Time travel series, Flóra digitally inserted herself into historical photos as a gawking bystander. In each photo she is shown documenting the scene with a digital camera or smartphone.
The photographer says she was inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s film The Circus, and wondered whether with time-travel we could capture the most important events and history.
“How would time travel affect life as we know it? Capture the most important events in history, upload to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook? If time travel did indeed become a reality, how would it affect our world as we currently experience it? I imagined how I would to do!”
