A skilled photographer not only presents you their vision, they make you believe it. Using the natural landscape as both a backdrop and wardrobe, photographer Bella Kotak brings fairy tale maidens and creatures to life with her "Beauty in Bloom" series. Druids, elves, unicorns, and wood nymphs galore appear in Bella Kotak's portraits, resembling characters out of the Garden of Eden or a high fantasy novel. Kotak started "Beauty in Bloom" after she herself developed a skin condition that shook her confidence for many years. By reaching out to people on the internet to share their stories of insecurity, loss, and struggle, Kotak brought these people together to take part in "Beauty in Bloom." Kotak melds the models into the natural surroundings, creating fantasy landscapes you can't believe actually exist. Kotak's "Beauty in Bloom" photos, along with her own fantasy-themed photographs, transport you to a world both familiar yet foreign at the same time.
