Childhood Fantasies

I'm obsessed with the photograph series by Magdalena Bors. Featured on the cover of Blanket Magazine, Magdalena Bors discusses her work and says, "people connect with the familiarity of the objects - they are things we have around us every day, conjured into something magical." Each set is very labor extensive and takes several weeks to complete and about two days to set up and shoot. The final results? Amazing...amazing...amazing!

I wish I had this kind of imagination and the creativity to make it come to life like that. It's very Tim Burton-esque, but less creepy.
