Haunted Woodland (16 photos)

Melbourne photographer Jessica Tremp captures life in a haunted woodland. There is a dramatic element to them that leaves us craving more. She aims to have her pictures “blur the boundaries of comfort and fear, leaving behind an emotional authenticity in which we can find moments of hope and trust in the unusual.”

Tremp moved to Melbourne at the age of 18, bringing with her a love for theatrics, romanticism and nature, all of which can be seen in her photography. She hopes to lead us into a world filled with drama, where she tugs at our heart strings or into a world of imagination and humor. Her inspiration stems from blues music, a bowl of spaghetti eaten alone, hugs, fights, the animal kingdom, uncomfortable social experiences, daydreaming of running with the wolves and from somewhere deep inside that we all feel is there but can never quite put words to.

"When I was little I used to dream about being a dancer or that I could fly," Tremp explains. "And that I would learn to speak the language of the animals in the forest or that of the most dramatic actor. With the click of a finger I've found a way to make these things come true."
