The Magic of Magdalena

by Brenda Dayne on December 15, 2008

Australia-based photographer, Magdalena Bor, creates fairytale landscapes of the imagination. The result of highly skilled and detailed construction Magdalena’s enchanted scenes are created as theatrical settings from everyday objects – buttons, yarn, and knitting – and photographed.

Vivid, complex and magical, the low camera angle of her images forces the viewer to look at the scenes from the vantage point of a small child, and therein lies the magic. The images are a beautifully crafted reminder of that time of life when every table in the house is a potential fort; every button box an Aladdin’s cave of wonders.

See Magdalena Bors portfolio to view more enchanted landscapes.

Thanks to Tonia!

wow, amazing. it takes me back to my early elementary school years when, with my head obediently on my folded arms on my desk at “rest time” i listened to the reverberation of sounds up from the wooden floor through the desk and imagined the small people that might live inside the desk. (anybody remember “The Borrowers” books?) i was captivated even long after i knew it could not be so.
_love_ these photos.
