Ohio based photographer Rachel Baran is getting a lot of buzz on the internet. At just 20 years old she’s already an accomplished self portrait artist. Her work is a dark and mysterious with surrealist elements. You can tell by her images that she puts a lot of effort into her pictures both pre and post production. She regularly incorporates elaborate use of props and/or editing. She flawlessly blends fantasy with reality that seem to speak more to emotions felt rather than just “hey look at this cool image”.
