Mira Nedyalkova, photography, dark, obscure, dreamy, melancholy, underwater

I have always loved artists who use water on their artworks. I remember being enthralled by a picture by Floria Sigismondi depicting, from behind, a drowning woman on  beautiful white dress or the stunning works of Brooke Shaden.

Mira Nedyalkova is another photographer who decided to incorporate massively the water element on her pictures. The subjects of her works are these beautiful girls floating underwater with eyes closed and several details that tell every time a different story. Dreamy, ethereal, erotic and sad are all adjectives that perfectly describe the work of Mira, who started as a painter and then, after modeling for some time, felt the need to be on the other side of the camera.

On this beautiful Italian interview she explains that with his photography she tries to depict the melancholy that is part of our entire life, that we must understand and accept.

Polaroid pictures by Andrei Tarkovsky

tarkovsky06

I never had the opportunity to watch any movie by Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky. Yes, I know I should fix this serious gap as soon as possible and now I have one more reason to do it: the Polaroid pictures by “Solaris” director.
Published in 2006 on the book “Instant light: Tarkovsky Polaroids” and recently digitalized and published by a Russian Photoblog, these pictures, taken between 1979 and 1984 are simply breathtaking.
With the typical instant film colors and a perfect framing, the photos of Tarkovsky have the strength to stop the time and transform the views from his personal world into powerful ethereal visions, simple daily life moments become dreamy, lost in time stories capable to speak to the soul of the viewer.

Check some examples here and if you like what you see, you can still buy the book on Amazon (there are both new and used copies) and let me tell you more, I have already decided what will be the next photography book on my library.

Please don’t forget to share this post if you like it.

Gabriel Isak’s melancholic silent dreams

Gabriel Isak

Looking at the works of Swedish photographer Gabriel Isak, you can feel contrasting emotions. His photo manipulations depict isolated and lonely subjects lost in foggy, desolated backgrounds, with subtle details and the face usually covered by smoke, hair, birds or balloons. All these elements contribute to create a sort of surreal and melancholic yet tranquil, peaceful mood. Even when elements in motion are present in the scene, everything looks motionless, peacefully static. Recurring elements on Gabriel Isak’s photography are present, such as fog, birds, trees, oceans and seas. The colors are dark, cold. With all these mixing elements the viewer is transported in a melancholic silent dream, but if you let go any fear you’ll start slowly perceive the sense of tranquillity of Isak’s beautiful visions.
