Fairy Tale Themed Photographs by Tamy Donnerstag

Photographer Tamy Donnerstag took these enchanting fairytale themed pictures for Lunar Magazine. I believe that one of the reasons fairytales are so popular among both adults and children is because of their elasticity – they are malleable and can be moulded to any shape. Certain elements are universal and this may explain the reason variants of the same fairytales are present in many different cultures.  Donnerstag’s pictures have a subtlety to them that relies on the viewer’s familiarity with the fairytales to make the immediate association.
