Brooke Shaden Dazzles Again with Beautifully Surreal Photos


Los Angeles-based photographer Brooke Shaden crafts hauntingly-beautiful works that seem to live in their own world. As we've seen before, she's no stranger to composing dark-yet-hopeful images of women in surreal settings. People shine and objects levitate in outdoor landscapes whose dreamy coloring evokes a painterly quality to the work. It's clear that a lot of care and consideration was given to every part of the surrounding environment, and we see small-yet-fantastic details like a field of wildflowers or colorful teal rocks in the background.

Movement is important in Shaden's work. Every subject has a very specific and acute way in which they're posed, and it makes their hair, dress, and other elements flow throughout the composition. It creates a lyrical type of story-telling, and Shaden's work sings lovely songs of women being inspired, and passionate, while enjoying the exquisite beauty of the world. Her unique vision brings out the dreamer in all of us.
