Surreal self-portraits by Kylli Sparre
Photographer combines her passion for dance and photography to create breath-taking narratives
Photographer Kylli Sparre combines her love for photography and he passion for dance to create her recent a surreal, dream-like series. Each elegant photograph is composed through image manipulation by merging her graceful dance poses against surreal backdrops, resulting in elegant and powerful narratives. Her broken, nymph-like physique juxtaposed against her breath-taking environement resembles a scene from an epic tale. This series is Sparre’s latest edition to her canon of intriguing, imaginative work.
According to her website, she spent years training to become a professional ballerina but realized that it was not what she wanted to pursue further when her studies was over. Later on, she found her true calling in photography. “I never realized that I am inspired by dance until people started telling me that. So it is unconscious. Now I see that it influences the way I see the lines of a body and the movement [that] I am drawn to,” says Sparre. “It took me years to finally find what truly inspires me. The feeling I get, when a picture turns out the way I imagine… I get so much energy and I love to be alive!”
