Halloween is Nearing...

I can't decide whether I find Oladios' photographs creepy or just fun, but either way, I recognize that they are highly interesting and the colors are simply beautiful. The subject matter is simple but intriguing, leaving me with more questions than answers each time I look at her work. What makes her work so fascinating is that Ola obviously doesn't try to fit it, she captures her state of mind and pieces of her identity in a mystical and twisted manner. Although the following photographs were not taken with a Halloween theme in mind, I thought they were completely appropriate for the holiday, and helping me further widen my view on that time of the year with visuals that are far from typical.
