Young & Battaglia
Gothic art derived from beautiful photography, make-up and costume combine with surreal fantasy in the post production. A surreal art print in a gothic, fantasy style. Creatures such as bats and spiders loom behind the serene woman whom as the main subject leads from the front of the image. She is either fully at ease with her gothic almost nightmarish surrounds or is entirely oblivious. The former might suggest that the surroundings are a manifestation of her own, a visual metaphor for her inner mind perhaps or simply a reflection of her character. A sublime surreal art work available to buy from Mineheart.
Himitsuhana started research in photography in 2007. She investigates the inner relation between photography and painting, and takes inspiration from the Pre-Raphaelites painters and Liberty style. She has worked as designer for storybooks, fashion and entertainment sectors. "I believe that photography is more than technique, it is more than having an expensive equipment. I am deeply convinced that photography (the way it means to me) is not the camera, it is the eye that stands behind the camera. My aim is to portray every single glance of the human soul and encourage people to dream and never stop believing in dreams."
