Photographer Katerina Plotnikova, who is based in Moscow, Russia, might not be a household name, but her work will be familiar to some. Early last year, her images inspired by the land of myths and fairy tales garnered some much-deserved attention. She has since expanded her portfolio with equally surreal and romantic photos, this time focusing on girls and their relationship with animals.
Whether posing with vibrant snakes or big bears, photographer Katerina Plotnikova gives these girls a fantastical makeover that will enchant just about anyone. Although she stepped away from more obvious fairytale themes, they are still present in this series. Her models are like heroines in the making. Perhaps they will resurface in another series by photographer Katerina Plotnikova.
