Woman Creates a Tarot Deck With Self Portraits

Vanessa Skotnitsky is a self-portrait artist who came up with an idea to create a tarot deck by photographing only herself.

“I wanted this deck to be saturated with the self,” she explained. “I have striven to be the sole ‘creator’ by only using myself as a model, to achieve this I have had to use makeup, wigs, costume and Photoshop to morph myself into different characters that represent the energy and themes of each card.”

In her work, she mostly uses DIY props whenever possible and sometimes she had to come up with creative solutions to challenges, such as representing a lion in the strength card. However, she still found a way.

Skontinsky wishes to see her deck used by people who wish to read tarot cards for themselves.
