Extraordinarily and Surreal Self Portraits by Rachel Baran

Rachel Baran is a talented 21 years old self taught photographer and artist from Ohio, USA. Rachel creates powerful surreal and conceptual self portraits with a lot of poetry and onirism. Her images are surreal, mysterious and dark, some are simply manipulated in Photoshop while others are created by combining multiple photographs. Baran began starring in her own photographs because photographing people causes her anxiety.

“Photographing other people is actually one of the most nerve-wracking things for me. I know it’s completely one-sided, but my hatred of inconveniencing others makes me feel like I need to get the shots as quickly and efficiently as possible when I’m with another person. So I get flustered and end up not getting the shots I wanted most of the time; it’s sort of a big self-fulfilling prophecy type deal.”
