Far, far from land by Tim Walker

Tim Walker's portfolios are always far from boring, and this one for the December issue of W Magazine, is far from that. In fact, it pictures a mermaid, in the human form of model Kristen McMenamy, being trapped in the human world, captured in a giant cage for others to see as if it was a freak show, far her from her natural setting.

I love when editorials depict the modernisation of fairy tales, like the This is not the princess i wanted to become i posted some years ago, and how they always turn uglier when given a modern treatment. There are many more photos at the source that are NSFW but i've posted behind the cut my fave, this shoot is so beautiful that you have to check them out all:

  1. M'encanta! Admiro molt el Tim Walker, les seues fotos tant fantàstiques són com cuadres del Waterhouse, m'agrada moltíssim. I les mermaids sempre m'han agradat especialment, crec que és perquè de petita em van comprar una Ariel de joguet, i sempre em passava molt temps amb ella. I aquest editorial em recorda a la mermaid de Daryl Hannah a Splash.
