Isabella Ståhl's work evolves around subjects of belonging and questioning our existence and is often described as romantic, yet melancholic, familiar, yet strange. She captures and creates compositions which generate tranquil, poetic images that explore reminiscence of something lost. Her work explores the contrast between the exceptional idea of a perfectly romanticized landscape and the dark undertone in our society and creatures mentality. In her photographs fiction meets reality and emphasize the beauty, the gentle and the dreamy, and in contrast, point at the cold and the darkness that inevitably surrounds us.
