Each one of these Leslie Ann O’Dell photographs is highly different from one another, yet they’re all incredible in their ability to invoke a somber atmosphere. And though the pictures depict females in ghostly ways, viewers don’t feel unnerved by them because each subjects’ radiant beauty trumps their odd presentation. These two things work in harmony to bring viewers into O’Dell’s fantasy worlds, which are thrilling to experience despite its perplexing and sometimes morose content.

Leslie Ann O’Dell is a freelance visual artist based in Denver, Colorado and she specializes in producing emotive photography. Oddly enough, she often omits the eyes of her female subjects, intensifying the enigmatic quality of her work. She also has many technical tricks up her sleeve such as x-raying her subjects’ torsos and giving them floral-patterned skin.
