Oh, what about modern ("fairy") tales? I'm thinking about the works of authors such as Roald Dahl...With " Charlie & the Chocolate Factory" in cinemas everywhere, I expected he'll soon be taken as inspiration, that is, of course, if anyone hasn't already did that. After all, I always thought Dahl had the best descriptions ever of witches, giants, supernatural creatures and ...humans...my imagination was on fire while reading his books, and i bet i'm not the only one!

^^^ Dahl was a genius!

These are images from Ellen Von Unwerth, and again are Riding Hood.

i tend to agree with stilista that i find the red riding hood stuff on the amateur-ish side...
it lacks a certain polish and maturity that the goldfrapp images have...

btw-those are the images you were talking about in the new gothic thread, right scott?...i thought that you were going to post those actually...:p
at least we have both ends of the spectrum represented here...


No offense taken at all. I love both interpretations very much,though. I think with LRRH just has a slight different approach with their more furturistic,sort of deformed sensibility.

I was going to look for those images I mention in "Goth" thread first but I was at that page and I got a bit anxious about posting a thread so I took those first. Sorry if I confused everyone. I guess starting with the kooky stuff isn't surprising,however,coming from me.

Here's some more stuff from them-perhaps better pieces??

^^ glad they're appreciated! :p

Remember these Natalia Vodianova shots from Italian Vogue...they conjure up Fairy Tale to me, the old-fashioned, romanticness of them, even though they're not an actual story.

I was thinking the same thing Scott! I don't when they were taken, but I'm pretty sure it was long before the Goldfrapp images.
