Emotionally-Charged Portraits of Faceless Women from Behind


Gvle-based Swedish photographer Angelica Strm evokes a sense of angst and raw emotion through mysterious figures of anonymity. Each image captures its own story without ever revealing any facial expressions. Focusing on the backs of her subjects (who are, most often, the photographer herself) rather than their faces presents a variety of intriguing narratives to her collection of curious portraits.

Despite having the back of a young woman facing the lens in every photo, Strm keeps each frame unique with her poses and crafty embellishments in the form of tattoos, props, and accessories, not to mention the background and lighting adding to her desired effect. Each image draws the viewer's eye in the hopes of learning what this young woman is going through.
