The approach that Lily used to take these photographs are varied but the goal is the one and the same — to communicate. She confesses that she's not the best when it comes to words but with photography, she's able to convey what she feels with a medium that best suits her. The result is a collection of highly-stylized portraits that were accentuated with the Daguerreotype Achromat's dreamy and moody effects. It's easy to compare Lily's photographs with scenes from novels filled with colorful and unique fictional characters.
