Inspired by fairytales from around the world, Anita Anti, a Ukrainian photographer based in New York, takes beautiful portraits of women and animals in forests that seem to pulsate with magical energy and melancholy. Some of her photos seem based on specific stories, while others simply create a fairy-tale-like setting, allowing the viewer to fill in the blanks with their own fantasies. Beautiful young women are transformed into magical beings and otherworldly characters in these enchanting images, thanks to Anti’s creative eye and attention to detail. It’s easy to pinpoint specific fairytale inspirations for some of the portraits, like the romantic image of Rapunzel gazing out the window of a tower, or the stunning new interpretation of Maleficent. Other photos, however, are not linked to particular narratives, allowing the viewer to imagine the fantastical stories behind witches, fallen angels, and rose women instead.
