Fashion photographer Viktorija Pashuta got interested in one curious question: how guys would look like if they were social networks?

Her recent project is aimed to capture the essence and special character of each major social network. Each model takes on the color palette of the social network they represent, and tries to convey the personality at the same time.

“Even though they share very similar functions and features, each social network has its own character and style,” writes the California-based photographer on her blog. “Facebook depicted as casual, Twitter as classic, Pinterest as creative, LinkedIn as Business, Instagram as vintage, Flickr as artsy, Tumblr as hip and Google +as innovative.”

She continued: “By combining the visual elements of the logos, I then casted the models that will carry the ‘spirit’ of the social platforms and represent their essence. It may be subjective, but this is exactly how I imagined the networks would look like if they stepped down from the computer screens to the streets.”

It is the second part of the photo series. The first one released last year was titled “What if Girls Were Internet Browsers.”

To esplaien each concept, t he Latvian fashion photographer quotes a friend who thinks that “Internet Explorer is all flashy, Firefox is sexy, Opera is elegant, Chrome is utilitarian, and Safari is trendy/hip.” In addition to the clothing, the accessories, props, and models’ poses successfully convey the applied dispositions.

Describing her ideas behind the project, the photographer said: “This time I wanted to combine fashion and Internet technologies to create something that will speak not only to the fashion crowd.

“We see Internet browsers icons every day and looking at my desktop screen I came up with the inspirations to glamorize boring icons and bring them to life in a form of beautiful fashionable girls. The idea was not only to show the color resemblance but to look behind the functionality of those browsers”
