Dreamy Meets Mystical: Analogue Photographs by Martina Civardi


Photo manipulation app filters aside, Martina Civardi’s dreamy and mystical photographs can either give you a feeling of wistful nostalgia, or send a slight chill running down your spine.

Civardi makes use of people as her subjects in this set of photos, but present them differently from what most people are accustomed to. Sunny, bright and toothy smiles from the ladies are not part of the composition, and faces are most of the time, only partially –should they even be– seen. Looking at these images makes you wonder if you’re floating in a dream, lost in a mystic, alternate universe, or in the middle of some weird nightmare.

The Milan-based photographer utilizes non-traditional angles, focusing, framing and concepts in her photos. Not the usual images you see in glossies, her photos are a welcome refuge from dictated norms in commercial photography.
