The work of Sylwia Makris is otherworldly in a perturbing way. Although utterly gorgeous, there are dark elements strewn throughout each image that bring to mind the Gothic genre. From clawed hands to skeletal accessories and dramatically edgy backdrops, the images will bring to mind the films of Tim Burton, if on a more mature level.

Born in Gdynia, Poland, and based in Munich, Germany, Sylwia Makris is a freelance photographer that focuses on fashion. Having done editorials and campaigns, Sylwia Makris' style suits designers and publications that embrace eerily ethereal imagery. As written on her website, "A good photo tells what was, why might have been or what is waiting painfully beneath the surface. Sylwia Makris has been in pursuit of these sparks since she first held a camera."
