The notion of fairy tales is well explored within photography. That being said, I find Trinidad Carrillo’s subtle approach to the idea refreshing. While I think all her work is wonderful, I never really got it until seeing the edit for her new book, Naini and the Sea Wolves. Her world is gentle and intimate. She seems to find the magic – and the awkwardness – in the common moment…isn’t that what photography is all about? For your viewing pleasure, here are some of my favorites.
