Flóra Borsi's Real Life Models 

- in pictures

Twenty-year-old Hungarian photo-manipulation artist Flóra Borsi uses graphics software to bring the impossible to life. Her Real Life Models series highlights the elongated necks and accentuated eyes of figures in classic artworks by imagining how the muses of painters such as Picasso and Modigliani might have looked if they'd stepped out of the paintings. 'I observed the little details, clothes, accessories that made the paintings recognisable,' explains Borsi, who posed for each reconstruction and then digitally retouched her own image and reproduced 'the most prevalent parts of the original painting', to create real-life replicas and slightly uncanny self-portraits
