The dreamlike self portraits of Kylli Sparre transport her to a land of mystery and magic. Although not as surreal as some photo series out there, they interact with nature in a way that is seemingly impossible. As though channeling her inner forest nymph or fairy, she is a vision in gorgeous gowns, floral headdresses and more. Yet what makes these dreamlike self portraits even more compelling is the dark edge present in each still.

Although feminine and pretty, the grey skies, mystical mist and overall dark palette lends the dreamlike self portraits a sense of foreboding that is eerie and eccentric. It is no wonder that the Dutch photographer is winner of the Sony World Photography Awards 2014.
