World renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz has been photographing celebrities as popular Disney characters for years as part of her ongoing collection of Disney Dream Portraits. The latest addition to her series is Academy Award nominated actress Jessica Chastain as the red-haired Merida from the animated film Brave.

Leibovitz’s series takes popular cartoon characters from the classic Disney films and transforms them into real life versions of themselves with the help of a few celebrities. While not all of the photographer’s renditions are exact copies of their cartoon counterparts, they offer a sense of magic and fantasy come to life.

The beautiful photography project Joan of Art by Thom Kerr features model Mackenzie Drazan, bathed in light and spiritual energy in a shot to the woods in airy and light silhouettes. The fearless Joan goddess is garbed in a collection of ethereal garments anchored on a substantial and womanly foundation. The pictures are magical and has a touch of fantasy on it.

Kerr mixes fashion photography with fantasy stories that reminds us of fairy tales. He bridges his photos between the worlds of fashion photography and fine art. This is apparent in the colorful experimentation in his pictures.

He has exhibited in Italy, Japan, Australia and New Zealand and he has appeared on Germany’s next top model as a guest photographer.
