Wintersleep by Laura Makabresku, 2016

The Melancholy Visual Fables of Laura Makabresku

I’ve been quietly in love with the work of Polish photographer Laura Makabresku for years. Her otherworldly photographs fall into that special category of things that feel too personal and precious to mention to another living soul. Or rather, that’s how I once felt about certain things I held dear: that sharing something intensely meaningful […]

Slow Holler Tarot Deck: Queer + Southern Artists Re-Imagine The Arcana
