The Girl With Seven Horses

Latvian photographer/illustrator Ulrika Kestere has just finished this short photo series based on a fairy tale involving an imaginative girl, seven invisible horses, and a blustery day:

"Once upon a time there was a girl who had 7 invisible horses. People thought she was crazy and that she in fact had 7 imaginative horses, but this was not the case. When autumn came the girl spent a whole day washing all her clothes. She hung them on a string in her garden to let the gentle autumn sun dry them. Out of nowhere, a terrible storm came and its fiercefull winds grabbed a hold of all her clothes and all seven horses (authors note: since they are invisible they obviously didn't weigh much). The girl was devestated and spent all autumn looking for each horse spread around the country, wrapped in her clothes."
I love the landscapes, the dreamlike quality, the moodiness, and how the fabric colors seem to merge well with each scene. See the rest of the series here. (via Colossal)
