Oleg Oprisco’s Stylized Photography Indulges the Fantasy of Escape

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Kiev-based photographer Oleg Oprisco’s works modify small details in their real-world settings to convey the essence of fantasy. It is as if his photos give off the fresh, dewy aroma of a wild escape to a desolate countryside that seems to belong to no specific time or place. In one piece, a girl holds up a rolled-up piece of a grassy lawn. Though anyone could do this in real life, in the photograph she seems to wield a sort of power over the land with her powerful, summoning gaze. In another, a model holds a stained umbrella that briefly gives the impression of a multi-colored rain shower before Oprisco’s process of dousing the set in paint gives itself away. These small details invite viewers to indulge Oprisco’s innocent, storybook-like fantasies.
