Fairy tale magic pervades Laura Zalenga’s (@laura_zalenga_photography) images. “Even today, I have the Brothers Grimm book on my nightstand — it’s worn down from all the reading,” she says. The photographer from southern Germany doesn’t depict knights or frog princes, but she shares melancholic moments and magical places in her triptychs. “I like negative space a lot,” Laura says of her extreme landscape format. “The calm in it is something that’s important to me. I hope my pictures have the same effect on the viewer.”
