Stillness and winter’s chill permeate the newest works of Polish photographer Laura Makabresku. Describing her photos as “screenshots from beautiful but cruel fairy tales,” she often includes animals as symbols of transition and death. There is a sense of beauty, romance, and darkness that weave together to enrapture the imagination. From the woman embracing a fox beneath the ice to ravens picking the eyes of a plastered face, Makabresku summons the bleak but beautiful atmosphere of the season.
