Setting Sail in the Flickr Ocean: Vorfas

How does one raise their flag in the flickr ocean and have it be seen in the midst of all those images? There is just so much to sift through in this ever-growing collection of work! Nature photography, self portraiture, explicit sexual imagery, thousands of kitten photos [403,430 at the moment, to be exact] and more, always more. There are a few streams I’ve been following since joining the site two years ago, and I believe they deserve your attention, starting with Vorfas.

This young photographer’s experiments in digital are endlessly entertaining to watch. On parade are mermaids, noir vixens, a circus you’ll want to run away with and a vast collection of self portraits. The  platinum-haired beauty captures herself as silent starlet, dominatrix, bubbly pinup and disgruntled nymphette among a long cast of characters. It has been fascinating to see Vorfas’ work progress from portraiture to the surreal and narrative. Perhaps an overactive imagination can be blamed for some of my reaction, but nothing looks like just a pretty picture anymore. There’s a little universe behind each of these frames that beckons to keep watching.

More Vorfas awaits, after the jump!

    It’s a testament to the weird way the interwebz folds back in on itself that I’ve seen one or two of those pictures before and have been meaning to hunt down their origin…

    Very cool collection of images, though! They’re all so different that it’s almost hard to believe they’re all from the same person!

    I could have sworn I just saw one of those mermaids in the newest gallery on deviantart today, but when I tried to find it, or her profile, nothing came up.

    Those are fantastic. They’re like all those weird dreams I have and try to turn into fiction but never can. Those photos do it so much better.

    I’ve been a fan for the longest time – I think she was one of the first artists on Flickr that I started to follow….

    “Stroke material” indeed. On so many different levels. This is the type of person that makes me excited to step in front of the camera. I can’t wait to see what she produces in the future.
