Sullen Waters: The Surreal Poetic Photo Artworks Of Nádia Maria

Nádia Maria (1984, Bauru-SP, Brazil) started to photograph as a child at the age of 7, by taking photographs of her dolls. Over the years she explored photography. Her relationship with the camera and the images she captures were born in her childhood, but she became even more involved in her youth.

Her photographs stem from her own reflections, from her desire to communicate and create freely and became a personal journal of her innermost thoughts and emotions; a window into her subconscious, letting her inspirations find her and delving into the depths of the human psyche.

Dia de deixar meu insta gato🎈8 anos desse "sem parada" aqui. Sem parada desde a barriga, não achava posição pra dormir na gestação! Nasceu com 3 voltas do cordão umbilical no pescoço, pq "não parava"! Quebrei 2 dedos do meu pé ano passado tentando "parar" ele, e levar pro banho. Não pára, nem comendo, nem doente, nem dormindo. Tem uma força sobrenatural: não chora, nada derruba ele (embora viva se jogando no chão). Toma pontos no queixo sem anestesia e conversando… Toma injeção, tira sangue de boa, e ainda gosta de ver a agulha entrando! (?!) Tem medo de nada, ama lobisomem, monstros, coisas assustadoras, adrenalina. Me pediu um boneco do palhaço IT de aniversário, tô contornando até agora pq eu particularmente não vou conseguir viver na mesma casa que esse boneco.😟 Mas por outro lado é a sedução em forma de gente (escorpiano), amoroso, troca tudo por um beijo, um abraço, ou uma noite na sua cama 😆 (sua cama será dele, vc cai fora na primeira virada). É o sorrisão de casa, sem tempo ruim ou PURO tempo ruim, calcanharzão no chão pisando duro (8 ou 8000). Tem pressa de vida e ao mesmo tempo não tá "nem aí"… Esse é o Tut. Minha mãe começou a chamar ele de Tut quando estava estudando sobre o Tutancâmon (o rei menino, "rei Tut")… ele era o amor da vida dela e de presente ele ficou com esse apelido. É o rei "Tut" da vó, é o "Tut" do Zion e da Wendy, dos amigos, Tutão aqui da família… (tem horas q ele até esquece que se chama Kairos). O Tut é apaixonante, 2 minutos do lado dele e ele já te conquistou.💕 Obvio que nasceria em 11/11/11 essa figura ♥ É isso, 1% do que ele é, o resto é mistério até pra mim ainda…😊 – Amor da minha vida, lorão da mãe… ♥ 8 anos já! Que coisa… 😢💙🎈
