Tamara Dean’s Hauntingly Beautiful Photography

Sydney, Australia-based photographer Tamara Dean is a member of the Oculi, a photographic collective committed to capturing contemporary culture in Australia, sharing stories not often seen in mainstream media. Dean's photos have a heaviness and darkness about them because she's willing to dive deep – her themes have been about ritual, intimacy and decay. For instance, in her recent series titled Only Human she depicts the fragility and vulnerability found in all of us.

Here are some of our favorite photos from her portfolio.
