Poetry in the dark (1) by Maria Serra

Maria Serra’s images are always dark, tragic and dramatic as they depict a constrained, oppressed and fragile femininity. However, the composition and the use of unusual props lend them a poetic quality. As so, they tell the stories of the inner world of the artist.
