The photographic portraits by artist Briony Ridley captures a wide range of feelings. The photographer, who lives between Berlin and Melbourne, uses an angle that lets viewers encounter face-to-face models with intense expressions. These emotional pictorials are dipped in anger, happiness and loneliness.
These emotions are communicated through the use of light and the peculiar accessories and props employed for the shoot. The vintage touch comes from the soft tonality of some of the images. Also, elements like the hipster glasses and over-sized bows increase the retro vibe strongly present in the series. Moreover, some photos have palpable textures because their rich backgrounds are composed of surfaces like pavements, wallpapers and windows.
Briony Ridley is a talented photographer with a rich and beautiful portfolio.
