A modern reinterpretation of the original, non-Disney fairy tale stories
Originally shot for a handbag brand, this series called Modern Fairy Tales has continued as a personal project well after the commissioned project. The continued concept is around reimagining well known fairy tales through their lesser known, darker rooted story. These classic fairy tales come from a dark place of depth, complexity and meaning; they're not all shiny, happy Disney tales. This series takes a modern re-interpretation in narrative, style and with dark humour.
The series has been an award-winning body of work, recognized in various awards, including PDN Photo Annual, Graphis, the London International Creative Competition, the Tokyo International Foto Awards, and the International Color Awards.
