Photographer Stephanie Pearl crosses the boundaries between fairy tale and reality

Stephanie Pearl’s beautiful photography depicts mainly women in scenes that appear haunting and yet as if you are capturing a glimpse of a story being told. The costumes and forest landscapes add a fairy tale romantic quality to the images but the light conveys the impression that all may not be right with the scene and that something sinister may be about to happen. Strange, ethereal, bewildering and other worldly are all words I’d use to describe her work and definitely more of an experience than just a photograph.
