Looking through Alizee Omaly's selected portfolio, it's virtually impossible to discern from her skill level that the Italian photographer is merely 18-years-old.

As a photographer, Alizee Omaly focuses on taking portraits that are pensive, engaging, mysterious, and dreamlike. Each of her images are technically proficient, often featuring deft lighting and unusual angles. Each of her photographs evoke a sense of carefree, youth living. Without being incredibly overt, she manages to bring a sense of hope, wonder, and appreciation for the Earth's natural beauty in each photograph.

My favorite image in the Alizee Omaly collection is set against the backdrop of the Italian countryside. Small mountains are visible in the background, and in the foreground stands a slender young woman in a blue sun-dress. Her hair obscures her face, but she is looking down, arms at her side in a carefree waltz. The shot is a perfect example of what makes Alizee Omaly's work so compelling -- it is natural, enigmatic, and original.
