In a world where society lives in a continuous fixation with virtual reality, the perspective photography series 'Starlets' from Anja Niemi is a wonderfully thought-out concept. It takes a look at the division between the personas that people reveal and the ones that are tucked away in the mind.

As far as her interest in this concept, Niemi states, "I have a fascination with all the things that crawl underneath our surfaces. We have tendency to hide all the ugliness of life and I wanted to create characters with a few cracks in their facades." The perspective photography really makes you wonder just how authentic people really are. Is it alright to hold things back? Should we all try to be a little more genuine?
