While last week I had featured a photographic trip down memory lane of my 2012 journeys, this week is also another swoon-worthy feature on photos… or should I say fauxtos.
Margot Wood is the creative mind behind The Real Fauxtographer in which she is probably most well known for her series of fauxtos inspired by YA novels. (I absolutely LOVE this play on words. So very clever.)
I had originally seen the fauxto she did for Cinder months ago but it wasn’t until last Friday when Jamie from The Broke and the Bookish had tweeted a Follow Friday (#FF) for Margot that it reminded me of her fabulous site. The first fauxto I saw upon visiting her page? One for Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. How very fitting as 1) I’m reading it right now, and 2) how very Lost-esque! What’s great is that not only does her site showcase her amazing work, she also writes a blurb/story/inspiration to each piece. (Here’s the one for Beauty Queens)
Another one that caught my eye is the one for Daughter of Smoke & Bone. How much does this fauxto match the image in my head as I was reading this scene?? It captures that moment so well… and that blue hair is so striking.
I love that these fauxtos aren’t all just direct recreations of the covers and that they’re magnificent shots inspired by scenes from the books. I’m hooked and I can’t wait to see what else Margot comes up with in the future.
You can swoon over Margot’s whole series of fauxtos inspired by YA novels over here!
