These Simona Smrckova portraits feature several different themes, styles and models, but the unifying factor behind this collection is its overarching sense of whimsy and fantasy. Simona Smrckova's lens captures windswept hair, avant-garde makeup, color-popping fashions and immaculate details like a giant glittery heart tattoo.
