This week the focus is on Sylwia Makris , a German photographer of gorgeous, ethereal art.
From her portfolio: Icons .
I thought I’d start with one for the Johnny Depp/Gary Oldman in Dracula fans. You’re welcome.
This one reminds me of a Pre-Raphaelite painting. I half-expect Ophelia to float by.
Not everyone can pull off either a neck tattoo or asymmetrical fringe, but you do both admirably, sir. And, per usual, I really want to know what that tattoo looks like.
This portrait reminds me of Miss Havisham, one of my all-time favourite fictional characters.
I love the baroque feel of this one. At first glance, it looks like a painting, rather than a photograph. Marat on his way to the bath.
The ever-winning combination of a (tastefully) nearly-nude, beautiful woman with interesting make-up and awesome tattoos. The skeleton key on her wrist is a bonus.
A big part of this is the make-up. You get the humanity–the freckles, but there’s also some sort of shading to bring out his marvelous bone structure. He looks like he’s been carved from marble.
The way the fabric is moving makes it look like it was taken underwater, which clearly isn’t the case. Silk and a fan? Her hair isn’t moving? I’m going with just beautiful. Well done.
Below is a (very small) sampling of some of Makris’ recent work. It’s untitled, hence no captions.
I would like to state for the record that I am in love with the model below, whoever she is. I just want to gaze upon her visage. She reminds me of a cross between Tilda Swinton and Alison Goldfrapp.
I believe this set is called Diadema, but don’t hold me to that. Either way, prepare yourself for the beauty:
