“Faerieland” is a dark fairytale, still being conceived, built, cast & shot four years after its inception. The idea and inspiration for this board came in 2010 while I was out one day walking in the woods with my dogs. During that walk, my cell phone’s camera began going off without being pushed. I didn’t look at my camera until later on that evening but when I did, I found a bright white picture of what looked like a fairy or pixie flying across the screen. I used that accidental image as my inspiration for the following series.

To date, Faerieland has been shot on the balconies of NYC to a farm amidst Midwestern Fields to the Rainforest in the PNW of the USA. The youngest subject to date was 10 years old & the eldest was 82 a few months before she passed away.

The story in its entirety, including many images of the landscapes of the realm, hidden faces I place throughout many of my pieces & each character’s story, can be found within the album on my Facebook fanpage, “Bottle Bell Photography”
