“We Are All Made of Stars”: Colourful portraits shot in ultraviolet light by Russian photographer Daria Khoroshavina.

Very often, amazing photo shoots start with a simple idea. In this case, Russian photographer and retoucher Daria Khoroshavina wondered what it would be like to only use ultraviolet light and reflective body paint as her light sources for portraits, and the results are great.

She says: “I got an idea of a photo shoot where the only source of light would be body paint glowing in black light. I wanted to make something chaotic resembling space and sky photographs.”
