Vintage Fairy Tales

Swedish photographer, Rebecka Ryberg Skött's exhibit, Vintage Fairy Tales opens today at The Church of Sweden in New York! Congratulations, Rebecka! This series grew out of her passion for collecting vintage dolls and toys and allowing their loved and tattered conditions to share their stories. I love her saturated colors and compositions. My favorite aspect is the tension of the doll's poses- they retain that "I will not sit or bend to your will, no matter what you do!" attitude that always perplexed me as a kid. I would also very much like to raid her supply closet! Xo

Don't you just love Becky. She is not only a talented artist, but also such a darling, sweet soul. The funky little boy dolls came from my house to hers. That's how I met her. Thanks for showing her wonderful pictures. Linda in New Mexico

Katie,

I'm so happy that you are featuring Becky and her unique,
funny, and sometimes very tender works. Becky has become a friend, and I was lucky enough to win a photo in a giveaway at her blog.

Its a wonderful blog.
