A series of astonishing self-portraits are created by the 22-year-old photographer Noell S. Oszvald. Even if the young artist stated working on photography quite recently, she has managed to achieve more than some amateur results. The digital editing and manipulation give her works a unique identity and aesthetics. She chooses to work only in black and white shades because as she states, she finds colors quite distracting from her conceptual ideas. For that matter she says: “I feel the same way about clothes and other matters of appearance, which why I like to reduce my images to forms, composition and content.”

Oszvald also wants the viewers to find their own meaning and interpretation while looking at her works. “I don’t want to tell people what to see in my images. This is the reason why I never really write any descriptions other than titles. 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.”
