Fairytale-like Photographs by Oleg Oprisco
Oleg Oprisco is a well-known photographer based in Ukraine. Although there are thousands of photographers and digital artists creating surreal portraits, however Oleg’s works definitely fall apart from all of them. One of the main aspects distinguishing Oleg’s photographs is the fact that he uses old film camera to capture his portraits and sceneries.
Furthermore, none of his works are digitally manipulated. “I’ve found it ideal to do everything myself. I come up with a concept, create the clothing, choose the location and direct the hair and makeup. Before shooting, I plan the overall color scheme. According to the chosen palette, I select clothes, props, location, etc, making sure that all of it plays within a single color range.”, Oleg Oprisco explained in an interview with BoredPanda.com
Oleg Oprisco creates surreal and fairytale-like compositions that look like so ethereal and, at the same, time so natural that after all it’s hard to understand what is real and what is not. At first, I thought that Oleg’s works are perfectly made photo manipulations. How the hell would risk to take a photograph with a burning umbrella? However, it seems that his works are pure raw shots with a huge amount of time spent in planning.
