Artist Giacomo Favilla's photo manipulations explore the theme of human identity and disguise their subjects with organic matter like flowers, seeds and tree branches. These organic materials are intricately arranged to cover subjects' faces and are composed to mimic facial hair attributes like oversized beards.

Giacomo Favilla's stunning art series is captivating and mysterious. Its imagery makes one question its theme and makes viewers wonder about its subject matter.

Subjects are hatted and don pinecone, leaf and branch faces that are both tactile and raw in their aesthetic. Inspired by nature, these portraits celebrate the beauty and mystery that is associated with ambiguity. Its botanical disguises play with perception and are its most visually striking elements that inspire one to try this technique at home.
