Laura Makabresku

Inspired by the beauty and tragedy of fairy tales and myths, Polish photographer Laura Makabresku creates images that are beautiful, thought-provoking and, more often than not, disturbing.

“My [photographs] are like screenshots from beautiful but cruel fairy tales. Their narrations are not straight. Images that appear are more like feelings that come during a lecture of an old folk-based story – full of witchcrafts and retributions. The structure of my works is similar to the structure of a dream where natural tendencies of collecting and organizing impulses and motivations coincide with irrational clashes of objects and feelings. Isolation and wounds are closed into patterns, uneasy and artificial orders – visual spells created in order to divide beastliness from humanity and dreams from horror.” – Laura Makabresku
