A photographer from Tallinn, Estonia, Kylli Sparre creates magical portraits of young women and girls whose faces are often blurred or hidden. Many of them are on the move, dancing in the background of foggy landscapes or carrying on peaceful waters.
Sparre tells us that she began experimenting with the technical aspects of the shooting process by using a scanner, collaging images, and experimenting with the movement and exposure time. Although she notes that many of her raids on underwater photography “will never come out”. “I’m trying to be as open as I can … I think what has required me to grow is the desire to continue to find “something” in an image that would touch the chord in me. Because what I find interesting changes a little over time. Being true on this inner scale is not always easy, but still necessary,” says Killy.
