This photographer goes back in time to take a selfie with personalities of the twentieth century

If you could travel in time, which personalities would you have liked to meet? Well, while you take your time thinking, this young photographer has already made his choice! Thanks to the famous Photoshop retouching software, she has become embedded in celebrity pictures. With the common theme of travel spatiotemporal, she made two series of photos: one in 2013 and the other in 2019, respectively titled Time Travel and selfie.

Whether with the techniques of "photobomb"(Which consists of jumping wildly in a photo, without being invited) and selfie, Flora Borsi master the art of retouching to perfection.

Last April, when the official photo of black hole was unveiled, Flora became interested in the Theory of Relativity and she asked herself: if she could travel as fast as the light, then she could go back in time! While she was making her "selfie" with Einstein, she decided to celebrate this discovery with a series of 9 photos, where she poses with the stars. With the series selfieshe also wanted to explore the possibilities of the eponymous cultural and social phenomenon.

I wondered what I would look like next to these big Hollywood stars, these artists and other scientists. I really would have liked to meet them!

Remembering Time Travel, his series of similar photos in 2013Flora wanted to continue the project but trying something a little different. And it is successful, that we can say! She first realized a research deepened on the fashion and hairstyles of the time, then analysis the light of each photo, the perspective, the depth of field, the noise and all that constitutes a nice shot! Following this step, she took a picture with the same technical criteria.

Even though I retouched the photos a hundred times, I could never reproduce exactly the same thing as the original shot.

Anyway, her photos are remarkably well retouched: we really believe that Flora was there! Unbelievable, no ? We let you observe the two photo series, hoping that you will succeed in find Flora in all clichés, because it is sometimes good hidden !
