Brazilian artist, Nádia Maria, creates haunting, dream-like images that channel her own life experiences. Born in 1984, Maria fell in love with photography as a young child, using her dolls as models. Growing up, Maria used photography as a personal journal to record her feelings and transformations. Most recently, she used the medium to document her experience with postpartum depression after having a child. With strong, emotionally charged imagery, it’s no surprise Maria’s works are gaining widespread attention, recently getting featured in National Geographic and Paris Vogue.
According to Maria’s website: “The focus of her inspiration is at poetry, and photography is her writing, her intimate feelings, the darkness and the light of her life.” [h/t juxtapoz.com]
