Talented Swedish photographer Emma Hartvig features an eerie and mystical quality in her photographs that take inspiration from many of the cinematic thrillers created by Alfred Hitchcock. The illustrations capture the contrasting bright colors and slightly bizarre themes often referenced in Hitchcock's work showcased as stills.

Hartvig's shooting style focuses on the body and the unique positioning of it in unconventional settings. The illustrations are rarely portraits or focused on the face, and instead look at the body and close-up details of the surroundings. The images feature things like a girl in a red bathing suit doing a flip in a pool or another with her legs up at the cinema. The images are slightly uncanny as they leave the viewer unsettled in the role of a voyeur.
