Using life as inspiration, she explores the facets of herself and presents them (beautifully) to her audience. Her style is game-changing and her compositions breathtaking.

About Kalliope Amorphous
Rather than approaching self-portraiture from an autobiographical perspective, I push the boundaries of what I define as “self” and “other” by playing with ideas of identity, gender, archetype, emotion and the visual interpretations and possibilities that exist within them. I do not consider myself a photographer, but rather an artist and storyteller using the camera as a tool to create.
I can more deeply explore my conceptual ideas by embracing the roles of both photographer and subject. I am continually drawn to concepts involving the subconscious, alienation, time, memory, transcendence and surrealism. Other sides of my work explore my love of paradox and the juxtaposition of light and dark, beauty and beast.
Most of my photographs use experimental in-camera methods, mirror distortions, modified lenses and handmade attachments such as the stroboscope. I enjoy creating unique ways to express the intangible realms of emotions, thoughts, poetry, dreams and nightmares.
