A Girl Searches for Her Invisible Horses

The Girl With 7 Horses is a creative project by photographer Ulrika Kestere that shows a girl traveling to various landscapes in search of her “invisible horses”:

Once upon a time there was a girl who had 7 invisible horses. People thought she was crazy and that she in fact had 7 imaginative horses, but this was not the case. When autumn came the girl spent a whole day washing all her clothes. She hung them on a string in her garden to let the gentle autumn sun dry them. Out of nowhere, a terrible storm came and its fierce winds grabbed a hold of all her clothes and all seven horses (authors note: since they are invisible they obviously didn’t weigh much). The girl was devastated and spent all autumn looking for each horse spread around the country, wrapped in her clothes.

    This is a great series.  And the story just adds to the photos.

    Interesting concept, but someone needs to learn the difference between “imaginative” and “imaginary”.

    This reminds me of the work done by Claire Rosen. Imaginative series. Great interplay and mythology set up around it.
