First of all, Star Dust by Molly Strohl may come off as a paint series rather than a photographic one. Clearing that up, there is a spectacular quality to the cosmic images that will have people immediately assuming Photoshop played a large part in the outcome. In reality, the young Savannah-based photographer used a simple technique to create the appearance of stars on the faces of her subjects. She shone a flashlight through a paper riddled with poked holes.

Star Dust by Molly Strohl is inspired by the knowledge that "every human being is composed of materials that were once part of a star," as written on Visual News. Strohl herself writes, "Our fragile human bodies are so much more connected with the universe than we commonly believe ourselves to be."
