Aneta Ivanova's Scars project blends urban and natural landscape photography with portraiture to create a series of stunning black-and-white images.

Composited using a blending technique in Photoshop, the images combine silhouettes of the female form with natural and man-made settings for portraits both dreamlike and ethereal.
Ivanova, who often serves as her own model, offers a different view from that of traditional portraiture. "For me, photography is not about freezing the moment and stopping time's flow," says the 21-year-old, self-taught photographer from Varna, Bulgaria, "but about seeking and discovering the world around and inside us."
