Narrative Photography

I must admit I have not found much about Lucia Arana, except that she is a young photographer from Lima, Peru. Her website contains many photographies, but none of the ones that are presented here... she remains, for me, a mystery.

But that does not keep me from liking those photographies, on the contrary.  The compositions are complex, but always crisp. The unnatural positions of the characters give the impression that their movements have been suspended even before the time-stopping action of the camera, reinforcing the references to classic art pieces and to fairy tales. Mystery, gravity and a drop of magic cohabit, giving the impression that the characters are challenging us to discover their secret.

The images have been found at Redvi.
