Laroche, a London-based photographer, finds beauty in the obscure. An acolyte of analogue film, Laroche explores the archaic and cult-like scenes. Her imagery is often shown fleeting, magical, sinister yet poetic, inspired by poets J.G. Ballard, Georges Bataille and filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder. for Hallow's Eve, she released a deck and a tarot-reading at the Close-Up Film Centre in London.

The tarot deck consists of 78 cards which use her monochromatic photographs and film stills from her oeuvre. Here's a preview of the deck:
