Enchanting Photographic Fantasies
Russian photographer Margarita Kareva is both the subject and author of a
fairy tale. Just three short years into her photography career, and she has
already carved out a niche – as well as an ever-expanding fan base – in the
world of fantasy photography.
Specializing in images that beautifully transform her female subjects into
princesses and witches alike, there is a definitive fairytale feel in each
portrait. Some are based on specific, well-known stories, but all are inspired
by her love of fantasy books.
Combining real props and costumes with digital manipulations and other surreal
elements, Margarita Kareva captures the wonder and imagination children feel
growing up with magical characters and locations, bewitching us with her
technical and creative capacities.
Everyone recognizes the classic beauty of Snow White, one of the most adored
fairytale princesses of all time.
