    My oh my… This one is a bit of a tear jerker for me. Perhaps I am becoming too soft in my old age, or maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones. Or could it be that this is just so beautiful and lyrical and I am not to blame? Oh please tell me I am not crazy and that you are with me on this one!

    Ulrika Kestere is a photographer and illustrator from Sweden who, between October 2011 and January 2012, created a photographic essay called  The Girl with the 7 Horses. Read below Ulrika’s beautiful fairytale story behind the series.

     


    “Once upon a time there was a girl who had 7 invisible horses. People thought she was crazy and that she in fact had 7 imaginary horses, but this was not the case. When autumn came the girl spent a whole day washing all her clothes. She hung them on a string in her garden to let the gentle autumn sun dry them. Out of nowhere, a terrible storm came and its fiercefull winds grabbed a hold of all her clothes and all seven horses (authors note: since they are invisible they obviously didn’t weigh much). The girl was devistated and spent all autumn looking for each horse spread around the country, wrapped in her clothes.”
