As if taken directly from real life fairy tales, Shelby Robinson’s photographs tugs at one’s heart strings with themes of fantasy. After scanning through the photos it is clear the photographer is, “expressing her inner thoughts, emotions and imaginations through her photos.” The viewer is almost able to hone in on what she is feeling right through each depiction.
Each photo shares a common theme in that it features a woman who appears to be a medieval princess of the woods. The woman always possesses beauty and grace that instantly enchants the beholder. The majestic landscapes complement the subject wonderfully with one of such even featuring an old sailing ship.
The whimsical nature of these real life fairy tales with themes of fantasy is something that is difficult to achieve, but Shelby does this seemingly effortlessly.
