New York-based photographer Nadya Wasylko captures a whirlwind of bizarre sorrow. The series follows two forlorn circus performers through their miscellaneous ventures. The couple is romantically entwined in wild prints and heavy stage makeup. While the narrative foregrounds the series, the photographs are breathtaking. The clothing brags bold colors and Russian-inspired silhouettes. The mysterious angst theme in contrast with the strong composition and styling makes the series memorable.

The artist specializes in complex portraiture and conceptually dynamic fashion editorials. Wasylko has a hugely creative mind and her photographs display her wild imagination. Whether through brilliant composition, use of color or lighting manipulation, the artist's work is masterful.

This Russian nomad shoot by Nadya Wasylko is a walk through a dark wonderland.
