Rosie Kliskey is a photography student from Plymouth, UK. Her growing portfolio is a mashup of youth culture portrayals and masterful photographic technique. Her works focus on spontaneous composition and narrative. Kliskey works with a mju-1, allowing her mobility and the fast shutter speed necessary for quick captures.

Her collection 'Coyote' is a darkly ethereal look into the forest. Her artistic direction is thorough and engaging. The subject resembles a sort of medicine doctor or friendly witch. The gothic undertone of the shoot is evident in the empty expressions and emphasis on isolation, and the empty connection between human and animal. Kliskey takes the morbid narrative a step further with captures of dead critters, including a belly-up fox and a crushed bird corpse.
