Haunting Fantasy of a Woman Running with Wolves in a Forest

Deep within a forest, Melbourne, Australia-based photographer Lilli Waters allows her wild imagination play out in her hauntingly beautiful series titled Black Sunday. Amidst the shaded expanse of trees and earth, there is a young woman in a long-sleeved gown. She is an anomaly that possesses angelic locks and appears to be dressed for a funeral. All at once, she appears misplaced and right where she belongs.

Throughout the series, the damsel's state is varied. She appears agitated, wary, somber, and oddly comfortable. Accompanied by a pack of wolves through the smoky woods, Waters' mysterious visuals lead one to wonder, “Are the beasts friend or foe?” More questions arise with each progressive frame, allowing the mind to wander and get lost in the photographer's haunting fantasy.
