I've always been fascinated with the clairvoyant world of fortune tellers and palm readers, and it looks like New York-based photographer Elle Muliarchyk has as well. She has put together a stunningly dark series of psychic-themed photos.
Yet Elle Muliarchyk has a more concrete purpose for this portfolio than simply exploring a mystic realm. She writes, "I wanted to conduct an experiment on how our appearance -- our outer shell affects and directly creates our fortunes."
Following the path of model Meghan Collison, Elle Muliarchyk had her embody a different personality (i.e. hippie, goth) as she visited various psychics around the city. According to Elle Muliarchyk, "The experiment was a total success -- each of those psychics thought Meghan was a different girl and gave her a totally different fortune!"
