It might some contradictory - modern tarot cards that uses retro-inspired photography. Yet when compared to traditional tarot cards, which predominantly used classical illustrations, modern is exactly how this set ends up looking. Interestingly enough, the artist behind the design is not only inspired by retro photography, but also uses vintage tools to achieve her very specific aesthetic.

A project by Brandy Eve Allen, the modern tarot cards are dubbed Invisible Light. Although many of the imagery captured represents the individual cards perfectly, others are more interpretative. Thus, it's also interesting to see how they manifest in her mind and then onto the card. Although these might not be the first set of modern tarot cards, they are certainly some of the better. People will want to display them.
