An American photographer named Brittany Bentine is currently attracting a huge amount of attention for her “fantasy themed photographic art”. Judging by the huge amount of interest expressed by Australians, it won’t be long before this craze hits our shores.
Locked Illusions Photography, who claims to be “America’s First Goth/Alternative and fantasy themed photographic art for maternity, babies, kids, families and teens” has amassed almost 500,000 Facebook likers, many of which have expressed their admiration for the interesting form of art.
Australian fans are super keen for the Houston, Texas-based photographer to come Down Under where they’ve expressed interest in participating in similar photo shoots.
“There is a few of us in Australia that want u here we should all get together and then it would be cheaper. As we can split flights,” one woman said via Facebook.
“Ohhhhhh I would fly to Oz from New Zealand to get amongst it too my girls would love it,” another female said.
Yet others, aren’t as impressed:
“Omg I would hate to see my kids looking like they were dead. I'm sorry I don't see the appeal. Great makeup etc but find it rather distressing,” said one lady via Facebook – with her comment also receiving more than 500 likes.
