The fairytale portraits of Claire Rosen is something that many people would wish they could indulge in. After all, the world is enamored with such a time-honored theme. From movies to television and more, it is something that can't be escaped right now. But, as these fairytale portraits show, the stories are the perfect escape in and of themselves.

Dark and fantastical, the fairytale portraits isolates the photographer in situations that are full of whimsy and nature. Rosen writes, "Inside my dreams, I am someone else. I create characters, like alter egos, presented as recognizable archetypes. The figure inside the image often looks away from the viewer, the face hidden by the turn of the body or by a mask. I hope that the viewer will imagine themselves inside fairytale, and interpret the narrative of the image as one might interpret a fairytale."
