Holly Spring is a talented photographer from New Zealand who is famous for her whimsical artworks. Her four-year-old daughter, Violet, is the subject of most of her ethereal works.
Violet was born without her left hand and was diagnosed to have Hirschsprung’s disease. Hirschsprung’s disease is a congenital condition that is caused by poor muscle movement in the intestines, and results in the blockage of a part of the bowel. When she was two and a half years old, Violet had to undergo a surgery that almost cost her life.
“That was the moment I thought we were going to lose her,” states Holly. “From that point on I was like ‘I have to get these memories of her, I have to capture everything I can of her’.”
Holly wanted to show Violet that she can be who she wants to be, hence the fairy-tale like photos of her daughter. Through these pictures, Holly was able to highlight Violet’s beauty and charm.
“She’s a very bright and fun-filled little girl,” says Holly. “She’s got so much character and wonder about her and she’s extremely brave. She’s been through a lot but she really has inspired me to be a photographer.”
Check out Violet’s fairy tale and ethereal photos:
Welcome to my Wonderland.
Where friends are always welcome.
Here, we play all day.
And masquerade parties erupt at dusk.
Even the water and sky will come together to capture the warmth of the sun.
In this land, fairies do exist.
And little girls can dance on clouds.
Even the trees will join in our dance.
And sometimes, really big friends will come and play.
Our Wonderland is indeed a special place.
When you must leave, remember: our land is a secret land. Be sure to keep our secret.
Holly won the ‘2014 New Zealand Portrait Creative Photographer of the Year’ and the ‘2014 NZIPP Auckland Photographer of the Year.’
