“Perception is my reality and this is where I am forever trapped. Or am I free?” says Sebastian Petrovski, an Australian photographer about his heavily philosophical photo series about beauty and our perception of it. He told lostateminor that the reason he made the series was because he was “one of those adolescents who felt detached and depressed about my situation”.

Each photo pair shows the same model under two different lights and location, and its surprising how much of a difference that makes. There appears to be a physical change, sure, but one can also sense a completely separate personality from the face in the picture next to it. Does that make sense? Have a look.
