The Homo Ludens photo series may be soft and feminine, yet there is a quiet eeriness to it that is portrayed in model Andra Despina's sad and lost expressions. This peculiar mood pervades the entire shoot, making the viewer feel cathartically melancholy even though there is nothing obviously distressing about the images.
Shot by Romania-based photographer Roxana Enache, the Homo Ludens photo series explores the idea that even though a person may be surrounded by playthings (in this case, white balloons), there is no actual playfulness until a person interacts with them. The Homo Ludens photo series shows that this is exactly what occurs. It is doubtful that anyone would deem this shoot playful in any way.
The Homo Ludens photo series showcases the fashion designs of Vika Gorenco.
