Variable Face is a charming photo series that centers around portraits of herself as she covers a portion of her face with an object. All of these objects happen to be natural in some shape or form whether it is a fruit, vegetable or even a plant. Captured against colorful and bright backdrops including embroidered tapestries, green cabinets and sandy beaches, the Variable Face series is quite arresting.

Shot by Maria Francesca Melis, a 22-year-old photographer who lives in Sardinia, Italy, the Variable Face photo series was born after she covered her face with a bouquet of flowers. Whimsical and playful, the quirky images encourage people to focus on different parts of the scene captured and not just the subject herself.
