Lara Alegre

When people describe photos as “haunting” I sometimes feel like it’s kind of a cliché thing to say. But then I look at the photos of Barcelona based photographer Lara Alegre I can’t think of a better word. In the images I chose above I see the skeletons of old bicycles buried under the snow, a mysterious man wandering through an old forest, an ancient mountain range and an abandoned city by the edge of a bay. Her photos seem like they’re from all over the world, like she travels in the most unique places and captures images that no one has ever seen before. Makes me want to bust out a film camera and start documenting everything.
