The fruition of great photography is a collaborative effort. Gail Kilker’s photographs are no exception. The scene within a deep, colorful forest with a beautiful maiden atop her horse is enchantedly soothing; evoking the ethereal fantasy worlds I yearn to visit in my dreams. Photographer Gail Kilker explains,
As a photographer, I continually look for something intriguing and exotic in my shoots and subjects. Something that will hold your eye and quicken the soul. The avant-garde and alternative look has always been much more of an inspiration and interesting to me. For me beauty fell off the runway, spilled into the alley behind a fetish shop and when it picked itself up, emerged a latex and lace clad femme fatale.
For this shoot, I collaborated with fashion designer Karen Von Oppen to produce a Victorian look with Gothic overtones. Ryan Krasney was adventurous enough to step out of the studio and climb on top of the horse to create these images.
