Poetic and Grim Photographs by Laura Makabresku

Laura Makabresku is a photographer and visual artist from Poland. Her work expresses the tragedy and beauty of myths and fairy tales.

I started photography in 2010. I think at the beginning it was a reaction to the incurable illness of my Mother. Photography has become something like a strainer for fears.

What inspires me? Fear, anxiety, human loneliness, personal barriers, compulsions, love, tenderness, fetish, decay, human and animal bodies, death, dark epiphanies, all this and more motivates my art.
