Laura’s Surreal World

Surreal self-portraits from young photographers are nothing new. In fact, one could say there are almost too many of them out there. But that makes it that much more impressive when a young photog breaks out of the pack and catches the attention of the masses.
That’s exactly what 18-year-old photographer and college student Laura Williams  did with her viral self-portrait series ‘Invisible .’
She explains how she shot this photo, where she draws her inspiration and why she loves this kind of surreal work; she also explains that the shoot itself was quite challenging because she was alone and had to keep getting back up to adjust focus after every shot, but the real fun began after the image was taken.

“The post production was really fun and that’s when the image really came together for me,” she says in the video. “It allowed to really play with the illusion and create the mood that I wanted… which is the feeling we all have of not being heard. Perhaps it stems from our youth, but I think it’s something we can all relate to.”
