Zlati Zareva’s portraits are dark, a little twisted and slightly macabre. With Gothic themes, a penchant for smudged and smeared black makeup and chokers aplenty, Zareva’s portraits are gorgeous—even if they do seem to showcase the subjects’ dark side.
Take the portrait that kicks off the gallery, for example. Zlati Zareva encircled the model’s head and neck in a web of twine that loosely resembles a halo in orbit. Click through the gallery for more of Zlati Zareva’s unusual images.
