With the recent release of my urban fantasy bedtime picture book, MABEL AND THE QUEEN OF DREAMS, from Schiffer Publishing, I’m always on the lookout for fun images featuring fairies or other fae. Here are some real world Fae from Karolina Skorek and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.
“I present you part of my photographic series, called “Tales”.
I always loved creating stories. All of the images were always in my head, and they’ve been itching to get out and be told (or shown in my case) to others. They are a mixture of history, and mythology, hugely influenced by my cultural back-ground, and my belief system.
I was born in Poland, and since early days I was affected by traditional legends and stories. Soon I discovered that they are part of fantastic Slavic Culture I had the luck to be born in. In them everything was connected to the force of nature. Everything had purpose and meaning. All of those stories had strong female characters in them; wise women who knew how to heal with herbs and energy, goddesses, fairies, spirits and many more. Everything was in perfect balance.
Those tales run in my blood. They are visible in every artwork I create. I invite you to step into the world of nature, magic and energy. Where everything is the opposite of what it appears to be, and nothing is the opposite of what it appears to be.”
