snow white

Model: Katy Fyrberg


For some reason I started to think about fairy tales and really thought it might be interesting to recreate classic images photographically. I wanted to stay away from the images we all know from disney movies and elsewhere and focus on what my own imagination would come up with from reading the original tales. I bought both Grimm's fairy tales and Han's Christian Anderson's fairy tales and began reading and making notes. Snow White came to be when I decided that I wanted the moment immediately after the bite of the poison apple, she is mid-fall, just barely alive. This was also my final deliverable in photo illustration.
