Metamorphosis project. Black Butterfly Сoncept: This photo series use symbolism to represent: fragile human consciousness influenced by mass media, hypocrisy of the modern society and an average human, who is forced by the system to spend a precious lifetime either on basic survival needs or excessive consumption. Black and white colors are used to emphasize the edge between good and evil, that humanity is balancing on. Bodies in bandages symbolize sick mankind, weakened by prejudices and fears and vulnerable to manipulations. Information is one of the most dangerous weapons now. Like a cosmetic surgeon can change physical appearance of a person, those who control mass media can change the perception of how reality appears to us and create the illusion of freedom and choice
