It's tough to deny the cuteness factor of the baby animals found in 22-year-old Dara Scully's photographs. It's also tough to tell what's really going on under the surface of these images, entitled Little Dreamers. In the series, the Spain-based artist features herself as the main character in a fictional, childlike fantasy world where youth and playful escapades prevail.
Scully frolics with baby animals, stands amidst flying goldfish, and runs through the woods, telling secrets, climbing trees, and exploring a magical land where her youthful spirit has taken visual form. Throughout the series, Scully is able to blur the lines between reality and the fictional adventures by combining her incredible talents with a camera and photo manipulation.
She describes herself as a storyteller and elephant tamer, and often pairs quirky stories like this one with her photographs: “A few weeks ago, I found a fawn in a birdcage. When I asked him, ‘What are you doing here?' He answered me, ‘I'm here because I'm a bird!'” Enjoy the talents of this young artist as she journeys through these wondrous and imaginative adventures.
