I was asked by Florida photographer, Heather, to participate in a multi-photographer collaboration in which we each set up a Cinderella theme photo shoot.
For my interpretation I considered how so much of the Cinderella story we know is just the days leading up to bal and her whirlwind romance. I thought about what she must have been like as a child, to fall in love so easily, to be able to access a person’s character so quickly, to imagine that there was something bigger out there than her awful circumstances. Perhaps only a child with a vivid imagination connected strongly to hope would see the world this way. This girl would live in a world of creative make believe and build a strong friendship with an imaginary friend who is the girl she could become.
