This showcase focuses on the ‘PROJECT NYC – Fantasy VS Reality’ work of PSHIKOTRA Photography. Her work often focuses on wedding, portraits and editorial, but this set of shots was taken on a recent trip to New York.
The concept of this shoot came to me when I was sat with a friend talking about fairies, fantasy and conspiracy theories.
I’ve always been fascinated with fantasy – the possibilities of what could in your world are endless – it can be so magical with unicorns, fairies and beautiful things, yet it can be so destructive, dark and deathly if you wanted it to be. Its your own world and there are NO limits. Hey I’m a BIG dreamer and my sometimes unicorn infested world makes more sense than the real world!
I wanted to capture a series of shots based on a fantasy ‘out of the world’ subject in a real world environment, combined with a natural element. Almost like a visitor from another realm coming into this present moment and seeing the destruction and the chaos that we currently live in, in a controlled society, but seeing there is still a peace that can be found. If you want it.
The shots were captured in Times Square NYC and Central Park NYC.
