In a series entitled “Fantastic Images” done by Russian artist and photographer, Ernest Em, otherwise known as 19Tones (officially the first Adobe author from Russia), the subjects — most of whom are women — are portrayed in a light of a message symbolizing rebirth, with bright, optimistic colors spelling out hopeful phrases such as, “Renew”, “Purify”, and “Protect”. Most subjects seem as if they are escaping the dark places — symbolizing a feat of conquering.

Em is well-known for his work for clients such as Adidas and as a Sony Alpha Imaging Ambassador.

“His life is dedicated to street, urban, and portrait photography, #prismagraphy.”
