Emmy Lee: Photography

I came across Emmy Lee’s self portraits after they was posted on craftgawker, and fell in love with the young deer who features in many of them. I feel it is the peaceful trust between such a usually skittish creature and the girl that makes the images so intriguing. But it is not just the presence of Mia, the orphaned fawn, which creates the delicate fairytale quality in these photographs: the careful composition, use of colour and golden lighting help to construct a naturally whimsical image. By flicking through the photographs in her gallery, you can trace the fawn’s growth, as her white spots begin to fade and she becomes more confident with the camera.

  1. Omg. I love this story. This girl is just so from the woods. Did she take all of these photos herself?
