Elisa Scascitelli is a talented self taught photographer from Roma, Italy who lives in the world of fairy tales. Elisa takes amazing emotional portraits, each her photo has a narration frank and truthful, even if surreal. Scascitelli shoots dreamlike scenes and childish personas, full of wonder and magic, which, at the same time, carry you inside a nightmare, where horror and death reign supreme.

My work has a structure similar to a dream. There is a character between two worlds, where the charm and innocence are intertwined with the macabre, and with strange spells and sorcery.
The photos are inhabited by people apparently normal, childhood objects that open the doors to the mysterious territories. Dark corners and cold, humid, only the tents provide shelter and safety in the woods and from these places. The whole thing is wrapped in a veil of tranquility, as if everything was normal as possible, creating a strong visual impact.
