Linda Blacker attempts to make dreams come through in her photography.
Linda Blacker, pictured above, often times uses her love for stories and her love for photography together. Her artwork is varied, extremely original, and very dream-like. Linda’s inspiration seems to come from anywhere. She’s depicted herself as in the ocean, watching over boats. She’s depicted her models as fairies, or statues. With the help of some makeup artists, including UK-based artist Ashleigh Bunce, Linda Blacker brings her own personal fantasies to life, using her camera.
One of Blacker’s most recent series of photos portrayed her models as vintage, pin-up characters. This was a set taking modern women and putting them in various, period situations. One of such images is pictured below.
Blacker’s work usually depicts London-Based YouTubers as her models and fantasy characters. Blacker is London-Based herself, and has taken many pictures of YouTubers such as Carrie Hope Flecther, Zoella, Carly Rowena, and many more. Blacker has also worked with start-up musicians such as Tizzy (pictured below), and has worked for a few social causes such as the UK’s “Stand Up To Cancer” campaign.
As stated before, most of her work “intertwines fantasy and reality”. Many of her works come along with stories, such as her pictures that depict men as stone called “The Forgotten”. In her little story, a man made of stone had been forgotten until a little bird perched on top of him for a short while. He was overjoyed to have company, but soon the bird left, leaving him alone one again.
