Canadian photographer Lissy Elle Laricchia found an escape. Bending the reality of adulthood into imaginative, weightless, framed moments, the 20-year-old blonde left traditional schooling when she was only 8 years old to pursue photography.

“I want people to retreat from the world and feel like a kid again, even if it’s just for a moment,” she writes in her latest bio.

In September, Laricchia was chosen as one of Flickr’s 20under20, among many other young and talented photographers. Her images  incorporate striking yet delicate fashion choices, complimented by her signature levitation style of photography.

“It quickly became an escape from the trials of adolescence, and an excuse to let it soldier on. The reason to get up in the morning and wash your hair. To re-arrange your bedroom furniture. To save your money for a Nikkor 50mm 1.8 lens. To explore an abandoned house. To tie two dozen apples to trees. To cut out a thousand paper stars. To practice ballet. To learn to levitate. To have tea parties at the age of 18. To forge, through art, a place for yourself in the world and fight tooth and nail to stay there,” says Laricchia in an interview for Flickr.
