This week I’d like to introduce you to one of my favourite Melbourne artists, Polixeni Papapetrou. Poli photographs children, (usually her own, Olympia and Solomon), dressed and disguised in whimsical costumes in serene rural landscapes.
Earlier this year, Poli exhibited a series called the The Dreamkeepers. She photographed children dressed in vintage clothing with masks and wigs, transforming them into hobbit like creatures.The Holiday Makers 2011
