The Dark and Dreamy Portraiture of Sylwia Makris


There are few enough times when the words haunting and portraiture truly go hand-in-hand, but the work of Polish-born, Germany-based fashion photographer Sylwia Makris fits this description perfectly.

Her dreamlike photographs take you into a strange, twisted world full of sculpted subjects under the most mysterious of lights and costumes.

Beyond the subtle-but-dramatic backdrops Makris uses in her images, her portraiture includes a seemingly strange array of accessories and props that tie the darker undertones of the images together perfectly.

Her style is hard to put into words, but I can’t help but keep coming back to the description TrendHunter‘s Meghan Young used, saying that Makris’s work, “bring[s] to mind the films of Tim Burton, if on a more mature level.”

Below is a collection of portraits Makris was kind enough to share with us:

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail
