This body of work is, to some extent, an alternative version or a continuation of the portfolio “Palette of Fantasies” presented to this contest as well.
Therefore, it is possible to treat both portfolios in a similar way. But at the same time, this collection is different. It is named in honor the legendary Queen song. “Its a Kind of Magic”.My collection is a certain kind of visual melody with a similar mood. Through characters, color, magic of the moment that i saw and showed on my own through photos.If we regard the originality of the fantasies of man as a unique set of all that he is himself, his personal art vision, turning experience into the image.That bright color fairy images as souvenirs of his imagination and time will be especially interesting in the context of some kind of magic that always present in art photography. So why again I refer to the appropriate phrase:
You do not take picture just your camera. In this process participate: all pictures which you saw, all books which you read, all music which you listened also all people whom you loved. – Ansel Adams
