A Hungarian photographer, Flóra Borsi, has created a special project: she photoshopped herself into selfies with historical icons, and now these photos are getting attention from everywhere around the world.

Szeretlek Magyarország writes that Flóra Borsi’s photoshopped time travelling selfies were featured recently on Bored Panda and are taking over the world. However, this is not the first time the Hungarian girl has gained international recognition.

Although she usually works with her own photos, in 2013, she achieved success with a history series in which she photoshopped herself into iconic photographs featuring some of the greatest moments of the past century. Her series was so successful on Behance that international sites like the Daily Mail and Yahoo! featured it shortly.

This time, she went further, and instead of photoshopping herself into the crowds, she manipulated photos of the most important figures of the past into selfies.

In 2014, Adobe chose one of Flóra’s photos as the picture that appears while Adobe Photoshop is loading. Last year, the company commissioned the talented 25-year-old to create an artwork for Adobe Creative Cloud 2019.

Flóra’s astonishing artistic flair has been recognised on many other occasions too: one of her photos were on display at the Louvre, another was featured in the TV-series Castle, and even the BBC wrote an article about her. CBS news featured her animal series too, and she was asked to give a presentation at the University of Detroit.

Her main territory is self-portraits, which take the audience on an extravagant, vision-like journey that puts reality into another perspective. Flóra often combines photography and photo manipulation with drawing, painting, or creating a theatrical artwork.

Szeretlek Magyarország writes that Flóra started off as an autodidact teenager who became interested in Photoshop and visual tricks at the age of eleven. Her main goal was to turn human reality upside down and to leave a creative mark on the world.
