Clicking on any of these smaller images allows for larger views.
We can clearly see here in “Play with me” how various elements from the original were modified and manipulated expertly including:
- adding dog ears of hair
- modifying dress coloring
- dropping in the fantasy background
- smoothing skin, etc.
Subtile yet obvious fantasy elements, like with the smallish toy ship in a bottle feel of “Calypso Triumph” here, strangely enhance the credibility of Popova’s manipulations allowing the viewer to merge his or her self with all the more abandon into these fabulous fairy tale creations.
