Fairy Tales and SarahPhotoGirl

What do you get when you inspire a rock photographer with fairy tales? Some fun, kitcshy and clever images to enjoy, of course. SarahPhotoGirl has a new exhibit featuring fairy tale imagery (some old and some new fairy tales) displayed at Castle Howard in York in Once Upon A Time...with Yorkshire Coast College. The display supplements another exhibit at the castle, Sing A Song Of Sixpence: Children’s Picture Books.

The photos have been inspired by some of her other recent work, two of which are my favorites of what I've seen of hers: Down the Rabbit Hole and Painting Tulips. The latter was inspired by Pushing Daisies, my most lamented casualty of network television cancellations and my favorite show in years along with Big Bang Theory. Yes, years. Alas...

Anyway, to encourage you to explore Sarah's work, I won't post the Down the Rabbit Hole. Go find it on her Flickr site or professional website. You can read more about her work on her blog. You can also read more about the exhibit at Sarah continues fairytale career, an article on the Scarborough Evening News site.

  1. I'm going to miss Pushing Daises and Big Bang Theory as well. Did you catch Wonderfalls during it's all to brief run a couple years back? Some of the same people who designed Pushing Daisies did that show.

    And those a very cool photos from SarahPhotoGirl!
