No makeup, no jewellery, no hairdo, no visible clothing, no preference. No smile, no seduction. No reaction.
What’s left is a person without a façade. Someone who has completely left his guard down. There is nothing between you.
This is amplified by the amazingly detailed, hyper realistic photography. Every little detail is exposed – no hiding.
Top that with a 3D effect, and you almost immediately lose the sense of looking at a photo. And actually, you’ve probably never looked more directly into someone’s soul.
That’s the paradox of minimalism: by removing everything, you see everything.
