The Dreamlike Self-Portraits of Kylli Sparre

Comment

Fine art photographer Kylli Sparre spent years training to become a professional ballet dancer. After realizing that dance wasn’t what she wanted to pursue as a career, Sparre picked up a camera, found that it was the perfect tool for channeling her creativity, and “never looked back.”

Since then, Sparre has become well known for her surreal self-portraits, holding international exhibitions featuring her work.

“My process is different with each image, Sparre tells PetaPixel. “With some I do very little in Photoshop and for some I do quite a lot.”

“I do enjoy the Photoshop aspect of image making. For me personally, it is just some quiet time with my image and no real limits.”

Sparre’s images often feature her in the frame, interacting with the environment in an imaginative way:
