Poliexeni Papapetrou’s Portraits of Strange Masked Characters

Polixeni_Papapetrou_Photography

Poliexeni Papapetrou is a Melbourne-based photographer. Her series, The Dreamkeepers, is eerie and haunting, contrasting brightly lit, beautiful landscapes with unnerving solitary moments – old men wandering in empty landscapes or a young woman holding onto her camera while lost in thought. Her subjects are always detached and invariably alone, wearing masks to further raise the question: are these humans after all or perhaps just symbols of ourselves?
