16 Comments

Since last year, Canadian photographer Daniela Majic has been working on an ongoing series titled “Secret Garden.” It’s a collection of surreal portraits created with elaborate handmade costumes and impressive garden sets constructed inside Majic’s tiny attic.

“I treat the garden set as an art installation,” Majic tells us. “Every month I repurpose the entire set to create and shoot new concepts and characters.”

Here’s an in-depth look at the images she has created for the series so far.

Majic says she is using the series to raise money for the Canadian children’s charity Because I’m a Girl. You can purchase prints through her online shop and follow along with the project on her website.
