Note: Contains slight nudity.

The works of photographer Brooke DiDonato are minimalistic and surreal, exploring the human psyche through subtly mind-bending images. Her new series “Roses” depicts colorful flowers melting down bare skin, emanating a sense of heartbreak and alienation. Using careful selections of lighting, color, and symbolic props, DiDonato transforms passive nude bodies into portraits of complex emotional states.
