The wonderland created by photographer Katerina Plotnikova is home to lovely women, grizzlies, fox and fawn, all living together in harmony. All of the animals used in her photographs are real animals. The trainers stand close by as Katerina’s brave models pose in magical woodland scenes.
The enchanted fairy tale land conjured by the photographer is one part serenity, one part danger. She makes us feel as if we are watching the timeless story of Little Red Riding Hood unfold through her lens.
Surprisingly, her stories of animals misbehaving only include unfriendly deer and deer who won’t stop eating long enough to pose for her camera. I have not been able to find any stories of grumpy grizzlies or big bad wolves, thank goodness.
