All of these images are of course best viewed large.
I've linked this before, but recently I have started to love Bat For Lashes all over again :)
I love how weird and trippy she is, and her album artwork is so beautiful !!
This is the artists Statement.
"Since their murders, the Romanov royal family have been the subject of much debate. They are often viewed as romantic figures, and many people are inspired by their story. The Romanov concept depicts each member of the royal family in their final moments.
The series is meant to be symbolic and beautiful. It is not a historical set of images, but rather a partnership between the historical elements and a more contemporary viewpoint. Each character should be viewed in the prime of their life, strong, beautiful and elegant. There will be no fear or uncertainty; only strength and pride will show through."
