Inspired by the lush natural surroundings of her native Vilnius, Lithuanian photographer Viktorija Raggana captures incredibly emotive portraits filled with enchantment and mystery. Raggana, who calls herself a “photographer-witch,” weaves her spell over enigmatic scenes that seem to belong to the same storybook realm. In these images, fallen angels, feral animal companions, and figures with piercing eyes inhabit a quiet world as captivating as it is unfamiliar.
“My work is not about the twinkle that we see here and now,” Raggana explains in an article on Bored Panda. “It's like an optical illusion, invisible but felt as a moment. Each portrait is a little message to the world. A message to open our eyes and start creating images with all of our human senses.”
