Laura Makabresku's gothic photography series shows women paired up with creatures in way that's haunting and beautiful at the same time.

The photographer, who is from Krakow, Poland, plays to this theme in much of her work, with projects like 'Ravens,' 'Heart of the Forest,' and 'The Birth of Evil' all infusing her human subjects with elements of nature. In many, she seems to use this as a means to comment on the lack of understanding that the two feel for one another, or perhaps even the opposite.

The gothic photography speaks to both in that it places humans and animals together in a dark and dream-like light, allowing viewers to understand it however they like. No matter what meaning they draw, Laura Makabresku's viewers are quickly transported to a fantasy world upon seeing her work.
