Elly MacKay has captured the beauty and simplicity of childhood and put that magic in a bottle. Or, rather, a box - MacKay creates stunning dioramas out of layers of paper and then lights and photographs them to create these images.
From MacKay’s bio:
My work often tells a moment in a story, and often plays with the themes of childhood, and the ephemeral. I look to my own childhood, my experiences as a mother, Victorian curiosities, vintage book illustrations, set design, and the land and weather.
