Photographer Kilian Schönberger created Brothers Grimm Homeland
German photographer Kilian Schönberger recently has presented his new project called “Brothers Grimm’s Homeland”, where author mixed photography with illustration. Big trees, dark homes and moody environment - these are the key elements that connected these photos with legendary Brother Grimm even more. Love it!
Just remembered this extraordinary photographic portrait, from 2010, of the Queen as Queen of Scots. The shoot took place by Gelder Burn on the Balmoral Estate, and Her Majesty is dressed in the robes and Collar of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle. She is also wearing the emerald-encrusted Vladimir Tiara, which belonged to the aunt of Tsar Nicholas II and was smuggled out of Russia during the Revolution. This was, however, plan B; the original plan was to use the official regalia of the Scottish monarch, known as the Honours Three- but tradition dictates that only the Duke of Hamilton may remove these from Edinburgh, and he was unavailable at the time… The photographer’s idea was to recreate some of the atmosphere of the paintings of the Scottish artist Sir Henry Raeburn (1756-1823).
Below is a picture of the shoot being carried out.
I was in Atlanta airport for 22 hours. This is a brief glimpse of the walls I was staring out for most of them.

I first came across these photos several years ago, but I’m still captivated by them.
