Kaija Straumanis Captures Photos of Hits to the Face

Often times, hits to the face will cause a knee-jerk reaction causing people to laugh, but in this series, Kaija Straumanis makes herself the punchline (quite literally), capturing perfectly-timed and surreal images of objects colliding with her own face.

Clearly, the person doing the throwing in this photo series has never heard that you shouldn’t hit a person wearing glasses — in these images, Straumanis is shown being pelted with everything from boots to drinking glasses and jack-o’-lanterns. None of these items would be pleasant to have thrown at you, but despite the impact of the objects, Straumanis remains quite stoic with her expressions throughout the portraits, although her glasses are knocked askew most of the time.
