Children of the Winter Forest: Dara Scully’s Poetic Photography

Dara Scully, The Caress

Note: Contains nudity.

Dara Scully is a self-professed “forest-creature, winter child” who instills poetry into her haunting photography. Scully’s works are like gothic fairytales, exploring the human psyche through complex metaphors and esoteric symbols: nude figures lie in strange constellations on the grass, ghost-eyed children peer at the viewer, and dark forests encroach on the frames. The meaning is always hazy but visceral, allowing us to divine our own emotional significance in visions of ritual and mystery.
