Feature photographer: Katerina Plotnikova

A few days ago I ran across an article featuring Russian photographer Katerina Plotnikova and I was absolutely stunned by the images she is able to create.  She shoots women within nature and interacting with beautiful animals, to compose surreal, dream-like photos.  Katerina has titled the theme of her photography "Another Tale About Wonderland."

I'm in love with the interplay between nature and the feminine; it invokes such a wild spirit within me, making me want to get lost in a forest or find Avalon or just nurture the part of myself that is in touch with our Mother Earth.  There is something in these photos, surreal as they are, that makes me think, that's exactly how it should be. 

They also make me want to have a pet fox.

I want to order prints and hang them all over my life for inspiration.  I hope you enjoy them as much I do.  If so, follow her on Facebook, Pinterest, and have a look at her 500px gallery.  She lets us have a peek behind the scenes to see how she's made some of the images work.

Who wants to go for a nature walk?

Katerina posted this about herself on Facebook:

My name is Katerina, I live in Russia, in a small town near Moscow. My English is very bad, so I do not always understand what you write to me here, but I dearly any attention and I want to say a big thanks to everyone who comes to this page. I'm 25 years old, I graduated from university with a degree advertising. But my biggest love in my life is photo, I give her every minute of my life. Everything you see, this is not a photoshop, my model actually sit on chairs nailed to trees and stuff, all the dresses I buy at flea markets and second-hand.
I also very much love and am proud of my country and I recently made a trip from Moscow to Sakhalin and the most visited big cities (about 10,000 km) journey it took 3 months, it was the best time of my life.
