Dora Kontha is an analogue photographer who specializes in wide open spaces, rough nature, and undiscovered Nordic landscapes. Her work focuses on the form of unreal nature. She creates melancholic and dramatic photographs with traditional film cameras and expired 35mm film in pursuit of feelings of freedom and wanderlust. Dora currently lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.


Enraptured, and enraptured,
In broad daylight, dreaming,
No one could see me sleeping,
They saw I was – exhausted.

And because in daylight brightness,
There were dreams before my eyes,
Oh, Night, now I lie here . Restless.
And like a sad shade, breathless,
Over sleeping friends I rise.
