Escaping Reality Into a Mysterious Surreal Dream

French photographer Julie de Waroquier began taking pictures in 2008, when she discovered her true passion for the art form. There’s an ethereal quality to the 22-year-old digital photographer’s work. It’s light and airy with a hint of surrealism that doesn’t hit you all at once. Like in a dream, it feels like everything is exactly as it’s supposed to be, despite the clearly unusual flock of birds flying overhead, indoors, and the tiny train set chugging along in the woods.

The self-taught photographer often realizes her stories by serving as the subject within the frame, in addition to her responsibilities as the creative mind behind the scenes. She composes herself in different scenarios, utilizing varied photography techniques to depict her dreamy, magical worlds. De Waroquier plays with size and creatively visualizes metaphors for life. In her photo titled The Weight of Time, she is seen literally holding the weight of time in the figurative form of a clock and in I Don’t Fit in This World, she is folded over, cramming her oversized body into an average bedroom. Her cleverly titled photos exhibit a sense of wit and an understanding of visual storytelling.
