Fairy Tale Photography of Viona Ielegems

"I love fairy tales because they are so realistic: we all face wolves and want to go to the ball. Their realism is on another level, a symbolic level. But they are fundamentally about what we fear and desire. That is why they have lasted so long and are continually rewritten. They are about the deepest, most fundamental part of ourselves." -Theodora Goss

Photography by Viona Ielegems and poetry by Theodora Goss were featured in the latest issue of Faerie Magazine. I included mainly recognizable fairy tale photographs in here, but Viona's site has many more fairy and fantasy inspired shoots, often dark and creepy.
