The second in a series of portraits depicting beautiful women in unusual costumes and environments, Jiri Adamec (opens in new tab)'s Ice Princess is a particularly striking image.
"I wanted to capture the beauty of ice in different forms. Ice in the real world makes wonderful shapes, and I wanted to recreate this icy beauty," explains Adamec.
The portrait features many types of ice; it is delicate, complex and often harsh. Making the hair was a challenge but fun for Jiri. "Creating the icy hair gave me the greatest pleasure because it gives the overall picture a different, original dimension," says Adamec. "I modelled it gradually to create the freezing effect, selecting parts of the body that are covered with ice or just a little frostbitten."
