Contemporary auto-portraits by Dara Scully
Dara Scully is a Spanish photographer creating universes of fantasy. Her series called “your branches/my bones”, “exposed to the ghosts”, “escaping from the wolves”, “bluebird’s heart”, “little dreamers”, or “winter in my bones” are great compositions on polaroid or analogic film where she plays with her body, often naked, the nature, animals with a cinematic style of visual poetry. She is developping a style becoming mature and that I find darker year after year, involving more narrative mystery.
Dara Scully is also editor of two fantastic reviews on Issuu: “Cuaderno de vuelo”, a sort of illustration fanzine about birds and “December Birds” a book of stories with photographs and illustrations featuring various interesting artists.
