Diana Dihaze is a Ukraine-based photographer and digital artist who manipulates her photos to reveal disturbing yet beautiful inner truths. Her images derive from the corners of her subconscious, arriving to her through dreams and nightmares. There is a surreal element of horror as nature and grotesque wounds cover the bodies of her subjects, all of whom appear to embrace their transformation without fear. The white lilies, as traditional funerary flowers, signify death and the purity of the spirit that has moved on. Insects, skulls, and ravens erupt from the bodies of the dream-figures, revealing the death of old ways and the outer edge of a beautiful—but unseeable—future. Packed with symbolism and a haunting atmosphere, Dihaze’s work encourages deep emotions and an examination of the soul.
