These Spooky Scenes Look They are Straight From Grimm’s Fairy Tales


Photographer Kilian Schönberger, explores and seeks out the less-traveled regions of Europe, in search of places that rattle the barrier between reality and fantasy. The results are haunting pictures that look like they were taken out of a dream. Kilian Schönberger is like a professional scout for soon-to-be-released movies based on Grimm’s Fairy Tales.

On the photos below, Schönberger expertly uses fog, lighting, and framing to subtly suggest the fairy tales of The Brothers Grimm, in a resulting series called Brothers Grimm Homeland. He leaves it to our imaginations to finish the rest.

The pictures that the photographer has captured were beyond spectacular. It truly looks like a place of fantasy that somehow extended to our realm of reality. Perhaps, it is better to reread the fairy tales by The Brothers Grimm while sitting in one of those places.
