Vanessa Pastore is a photographer living and working in Connecticut. Using dreamlike and striking imagery that brings the unsettling and strange into daily life, she shows us what happens when the weird overlaps with the ordinary. Inspiration is found in facing fears, creating windows into new worlds of possibility, and ushering in an everyday darkness. Motivated by what could be, and the things that dance just outside your line of sight when you're not looking; Vanessa blends the use of light, shadow, texture, bare bones props, and a sprinkle of Photoshop to make the impossible possible, just when you least expect it. The darkness wasn't waiting to be invited in, it was here all along.
