Menerva Tau is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Ankara, Turkey. Not bound to one technique Minerva uses photography, drawing, painting, or a combination of those techniques to create her magical pieces. Menerva’s work reminds me of spirit photography of the Victoria era, haunting images manipulated by the photographer to show something more than just a portrait. You might be familiar with the term ectoplasm, a mystical spiritual energy that kept people confused for decades before we found out it was a hoax. These mysterious, spiritual photos seemed to show a persons soul, something that also shows in Minerva’s work.
