Dreams and Mysteries (14 photos)

Julie de Waroquier is a gifted photographer based in Lyon, France. Her area of expertise resides in the conceptual, in life portraits, and in the surreal. Within her photographs, there is a tie between the mysterious and the intriguing.

“I try to make reality look surreal in my pictures,” says Waroquier. “I prefer showing the world as it could be rather than as it is. Photographers such as Tim Walker inspire me a lot in this dreamlike pursuit.

“Be they realistic or surreal, I try to give all of my shots a poetic and conceptual dimension; I want to create new worlds that may surprise the people who observe them. I try to catch people’s universal dreams.”
