Brooke Shaden is a photographer whose art looks more like dreamlike (and occasionally nightmarish) painting.
Some of her work is just plain spooky. For example, ‘The Guiding Spirit’ [below] looks like two girls facing the same direction, one bending forward and the other leaning backward over her. Then you see the girl closest to the camera–her feet are facing us.
While ‘Moving House’ puts one in mind of the first series of American Horror Story.
‘The Aftermath’ is reminiscent of Millais’ ‘Ophelia’
‘The Sharing Game’ looks like a lost M.R. James ghost story come to life.
‘The Protector of Magic’ both looks and sounds like a Neil Gaiman novel.
A lot of her work reminds me of the video for Tori Amos’ ‘Caught a Lite Sneeze’ in the best way. I cannot find the video online, but if you’ve seen it, you know it.
You can find much, much more of her work on her website.
Hat tip to my friend Gary Glass for pointing me to this one. Thanks, Gary!
