Annija Veldre , a 21 year-old Lativian, self-taught fine-art photograph artist, set out to use photography and Photoshop to create self-portraits that capture the essence of beauty in the intrinsic connection of humans, animals, and nature.

The result was spectacular – with each frame she showed us not only her creative genius, but revealed just how beautiful the human spirit would look if it were one with nature.
