Dreamlike Portraits by Alex Benetel

Alex Benetel is a 19-year-old fine art photographer from Sydney, Australia. Her imaginative portraits give a sense of being a dream or a mythical story by mixing real-world objects and settings with strange effects and juxtapositions. Her goal, she says, is “to create beautiful photographs that capture mysterious yet dream-like worlds, filled with oddities that encompass aspects of reality.” Though young, she seems to have already accomplished much of that goal.

I love square format and the compositional potential it has. This a fantastic series of well thought out imagery which seems passive to begin with but develops into uncanny concern. There is a lot of detachment which adds to the painterly aesthetic. Lost and wanting to be found; fave.
