Art Nudes Are Telling Stories
from her “Haunted” series
My name is Sybilka Storie and I am a photographer. I use my work to breathe. I use my work to save myself. I use my work to live.
These are several photos from an ongoing series of portraits that aim to communicate the sense of detachment and the incessant yearning to not be so. We all have “ghosts” that follow us around. And I definitely have my share of them. But instead of letting them get the best of me, I let them work through me and into my photography. This series represents the reconciliation of a past life and my present life. Trying to rediscover who I am after death and rebirth. There are moments of seduction, anger, despair, euphoria and longing. All the things that we usually try to endure behind closed doors. But sometimes the door needs to be opened and light needs to be shed on these moments in order to chase the ghosts away.
