Surreal Self-Portraits by 22-Year-Old Noell S. Oszvald

Hungarian-based photographer Noell S. Oszvald presents such a powerful self-portrait portfolio that you wouldn’t believe she’s been into creative photography for just over one year now.

The 22-year-old makes black and white photos only, as she says she finds colors distracting. “I feel the same way about clothes and other matters of appearance, which why I like to reduce my photography artworks to forms, composition, and content,” she says.

Noell also refuses to write any descriptions below her photo manipulations and sticks to captions only in order to leave the room for interpretation for the viewers. “I don’t want to tell people what to see in my images,” she says, “It shows what I wish to express but everyone is free to figure out what the picture says to them. It’s very interesting to read so many different thoughts about the same piece of work.”

Maybe because her portrait photography is so emotional and touching, Noell sometimes even struggles to decide if it’s worthwhile publishing them. This is what happened to Prejudice, which she took down from her flickr profile with a fear that people would judge accuracy of composition. This just shows how much thought and emotions Noell puts into her unique artworks – and that makes it all the more special.
