Flowers, Leaves, and Snow: 3 Seasons with The Faerie Tribe
Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,For I would ride with you upon the wind,Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,And dance upon the mountains like a flame.~William Butler Yeats, "The Land of Heart's Desire," 1894
Once upon a time I met the extraordinary Lindsey Cline at some Creative Salem event or another. She was making magic with a hula hoop (something I didn't realize was possible at the time), and I was so enamored with her talent that I decided I wanted to know her.
Fast forward several months, and she's telling me about this group called The Faerie Tribe, and about her desire to do a series of photos at the newly installed Stickwork – created by Patrick Dougherty for the Peabody Essex Museum. As the entire structure is akin to a mythical home designed by the leaders of the fae, I thought it was an excellent idea. Ultimately she wanted to do three different shoots: one in Spring, one in Autumn, and one in Winter.

Thank you to The Faerie, and especially to Lindsey, for helping me to create these dreams.
