Mermaids, Fairy Princesses, and Good Witches!

It is, apparently, something of a tradition among up-and-coming Eastern European photogs to shoot portraits with classic fairytale themes from their nations. Among other things, this makes it very easy for GM’s to find pictures of witches—good or bad—fairies, monsters, angels, princes, princesses, pirates, and various other creatures of folktales and fairy stories.

Today’s gallery of the fantastic and stunningly beautiful comes from Ukrainian photog Alena Kycher.

Storybook Visions and Nightmare Dreams

Russian photog Shibina Nadegda’s photos are alternately fantastic, bucolic, and elegiac. Some are medieval, some Victorian, but all are beautiful.
