Fantastical Photos of an Imaginative World

In these graphically pleasing images, Ukrainian photographer Oleg Oprisco has a great talent for capturing extremely passionate and emotional portraits. In one shot, a single, stunning subject draws the viewer in with her disinterested gaze, while another shot features a surreal moment that captivates the viewer and leaves us longing to know more about the moment–What’s going on? What is the subject doing? Why is she there?

Oprisco’s imaginative world is filled with soft, hazy color palettes that help to blur the meaning behind the scenes. His photographs stand alone to tell compelling stories of love, heartache, loneliness, indifference, and strength, combined with an intense sense of fashion, but viewers will be filled with questions about exactly how to decipher the creations. Ultimately, Oprisco’s emotive portraits will spark imagination and viewers will find themselves concocting narratives to complete each ambiguous moments.
