We worry about money, power, status and the way the world perceives us. While we spend all of our energy succumbing to these, there’s people like you and me that are living parallel lives, except in a place where there’s miles of nothingness.

“Faerieland” is a dark fairytale, still being conceived, built, cast & shot four years after its inception. The idea and inspiration for this board came in 2010 while I was out one day walking in the woods with my dogs. During that walk, my cell phone’s camera began going off without being pushed. I didn’t look at my camera until later on that evening but when I did, I found a bright white picture of what looked like a fairy or pixie flying across the screen. | I used that accidental image as my inspiration for the following series. | To date, Faerieland has been shot on the balconies of NYC to a farm amidst Midwestern Fields to the Rainforest in the PNW of the USA. The youngest subject to date was 10 years old & the eldest was 82 a few months before she passed away. | The story in its entirety, including many images of the landscapes of the realm, hidden faces I place throughout many of my pieces & each character’s story, can be found within the album on my facebook fanpage of “Bottle Bell Photography”
Photographer Curro Chozas would like to share with us an experiment he´s working on. There is no brand involved. “I have always been interested in bringing experiences from online to offline platforms, in other words take internet experiences to the real world. I did a photo-exhibition in FB the album was public and anyone could comment on it and I pledged to print and paste all the comments in the real world. I thought It would be awesome if I got 1,000 and had to print and paste them, it would be a very long line that would pass through the whole Gallery where the work was displayed. All the photos were taken with an iPhone 4S, Apps used are detailed in one of the photos.”
