Photographer Spotlight: Laura Makabresku

Laura Makabresku is a Polish born photographer who has achieved a cult status over the past two years through her mystical, sometimes unnerving but always calming collection of photos.

When she was 16, she began writing poetry as a way of exploring her emotions and expressing the way she was feeling to the outside world. Although a poet at heart,  Laura felt the need to go beyond the silence of poetry and find a tangible way of exploring deep and emotional issues. That is when she picked up a camera and started creating the most wonderful works of art.

Her work is deep and powerful whilst at the same time having a sense of calm and fragility. This contrast is a signature style of Laura Makabresku and it is why I have fallen head over heels in love with her work.

We are so lonely here, on an august moon. We are falling asleep hidden in a graves covered with cold flowers. We are waiting for a comet to arise.


It was cold, winter morning. I observed through the window how she got out of the cab. I opened the door and for the first time I saw her gentle eyesight - eyes cold as they were a frozen ocean. Then I allowed her sleepy body to lay down on my bed.
