Lily Bloodstained AKA Mon-artifice is an amazing young photographer who does the most fantastic self-portraiture. In her richly dark imagery, she takes on the personae of tragic and baroque, 18th-century aristocrats and the like, in flour-white makeup elaborated with ink ornamentation, and half-masks, often with the theme of mirroring, fragmented, or double images. Expressive, dark, and endlessly creative, she is a true inspiration. She embodies a sense of nostalgic melancholy, and her work, though deeply emotional, is always subtle and has a certain elegant quality. Here is some of her work below. I like so many of her images that it was hard to pick!
