A provocative and imaginative collection from a talented young photographer
- Sure to appeal to fine-art enthusiasts and all who appreciate quirky imagery
This collection from Cellina von Mannstein finds the beauty in flawed and funky situations. Her freewheeling images celebrate decadent excess as well as the aesthetics of disorder and confusion. Before taking up fine art and fashion photography, von Mannstein worked in film. Her compositions hold your attention and are compellingly real. For her, telling a story — not just creating an image — is what it's all about. These original works have the atmosphere of dark fairytales with dream-like juxtapositions and hints of seediness.
