This Photographer Captures Dark and Dreamlike Worlds Through the Lens of Her Camera





Fantasy-adventure movie fanatics would definitely appreciate the works of Seattle-based photographer Kindra Nikole. This amazing woman was able to capture the dark, mysterious, yet enchanting beauty of a dreamlike world through her camera.

The talented photographer released a haunting photo series called Dreamscapes. It features intricately dressed women who are one with nature. Nikole painstakingly worked with fresh foliage even though it’s quite taxing. The leaves wilt easily when they were taken out of the water so she had to work fast in constructing the garments.  It’s really fascinating how she personally created the models’ wardrobe and conceptualized their looks herself.

Nikole said, “Since I have very fleshed-out ideas for the concepts of Dreamscapes, it’s usually not a very long round of shooting before I have what I want.”

Looking at each and every photograph takes one to a different dimension where fairies and magical, mythical creatures exist.

Here are 10 breathtaking pictures from the Dreamscapes series:

Nikole is a fan of dark fantasy herself.

Like Mitchell, Nikole's art has been greatly influenced by her mother's death.
