Wander & Wonder

 I find myself feeling extremely ambivalent about these photographs.

I love them. The background is so beautiful and mysterious and I love the colors but some of the children look sort of afraid and alone and cold to me.

The dark imagery makes me feel like something horrible will happen very soon.

There is no doubt that Melbourne photographer Jeremy Blincoe is gifted and this is part of his series "Wander and Wonder".

These photographs are so original I've seen very few photos with this fairytale feel before. 

At the same time I just can't help but feel like hugging these kids and bringing them somewhere warm.

What do you think?
