Something Beauutiful: Lissy Laricchia

"I live in Canada, where the moose are. I take pictures of anything that will stay still long enough. If you asked me if I would rather see one of the seven wonders or Las Vegas, I would always say Las Vegas. I admire Dr. Suess and Chuck Palahniuk more then you (sorry), and you bet your ass I would sooner tear out my own eyes then spell Panic! At The Disco without the exclamation point."

Lissy Laricchia photographs touch on beloved fairy tales and myths, dreams and fantasy. The names are whimsical and meaningful: Queen Alice, The Quest, 365, Princess Alyssabeth's Birthday, A Profound Connection, The Forbidden Fruits and The Play Pretend Princess are the titles in order. 

Lissy Laricchia is on facebook.

  6. These are great and they remind me of this little black and white book my sister had as a kid. There was a little girl in the woods with a teddy bear... thought provoking.
