Chapter 13 - Barcelona ***photo: Casa Batllo, built in 1877 by architect Antoni Gaudi. #Barcelona, #Spain Spanish Impressions paperback available from Lulu: http://www.lulu.com/shop/robert-bovington/spanish-impressions/paperback/product-6154918.html
Designed by Antoni Gaudi and built between 1905-07, the Casa Batllo is a masterpiece of modern surreal architecture. The locals call it the Casa dels Ossos (house of bones) and I have to agree with them, from the outside anyway. It's skeletal balconies and window frames give it the look of a mythical beast, the rainbow mosaics that decorate the front glinting like scales in the sun.
Moscow-based photographer Alexander Khokhlov and makeup artist Valeriya Kutsan have teamed up to create an amazing series of portraits, using the natural lines of models’ faces to create illusionary forms.
