The 'Vestiges' Series Combines Models with Mask Photos

The cleverly created mask photos, aptly entitled 'Vestiges,' is a collaborative effort from artist Bryan Schnelle and fashion photographer Chris Callaway. The series combines the glamorous models of fashion photography with gruesome masks that create a contrasting effect.

The idea is certainly not your average theme, but that is what makes the series so distinct. Having a beautiful model who has her makeup done, hair styled and has a stunning visage wearing these grotesque masks makes for sleek and thought-provoking photos. Mask photos are generally not created with such a luxurious feel and that contrasting addition leaves for a lot of artistic interpretation. The perfect image to capture the theme is the one where the model is only wearing a mask that covers half her face; it truly shows the difference between beauty and the collocated beast.
