Surreal Photo Manipulations By Ex-Ballet Dancer Kylli Sparre

Facebook | show in Amsterdam next month at Qlickeditions

Young or old, it’s never too late to change directions in life and begin chasing your dreams instead of just your obligations.  Photographer Kylli Sparre is a perfect example of this – she discovered that she wanted to be a photographer only after completing professional ballet school.

“When the studies were over, I realized it wasn’t the path for me. I have been searching for an outlet for my creativity ever since. [A few] years ago I found it in photography and never looked back,” writes the artist on her website. The influence of her professional ballet experience is clear in her current photography work – the models in her surreal and dream-like pictures are filled with grace, effortless poise, elegance and beauty.

“ I’ve come to see it as totally normal that I’ll always worry about how it feels to shed my clothes in front of another person. To shy away from their touch and wonder if that moonlight trickling in is enough for them to see my stretch marks. To feel a hand on my stomach and physically cringe, just waiting for that moment they realize who I really am. I know how it feels to have people leave and for that web of inferiority to start tangling up my mind, hanging on to all the negative stuff and refusing to let positive even have a chance. ”
