Lara Wilde

Photographer, Germany

Lara Wilde is a photographer who works and lives in Berlin, Germany.

For Lara Wilde, artistic expression revolves around portraying and distorting the world that surrounds her. The creation of scenic landscapes, predominantly through techniques such as light painting and other manipulation methods constitutes the artist’s technical repertoire.

At the thematic core of Wilde’s body of work is the exploration of raw emotion. A profound fascination with unraveling the wonders of how individuals navigate the tumultuous journey of life serves as the source of her creative inquiry. Life, in all its unfathomable chaos, reveals a paradoxical tranquility that captivates Wilde’s attention. To capture this essence, she delves into the truths of strangers, documenting their realities while deliberately stepping away from the overarching narrative of conventional reality.

With radical compassion as her guide, the artist carries a melancholy in the face of the current state of the world we live in. Seeking refuge in the fantasies of others is her way of confronting the good days, while escape becomes the strategy on darker days.
