Milk & Sea series by photographer Hana Vojackova.
"The project Milk & Sea is a photographic exploration of how to connect these mythical females to the real world; what could mermaids’ stories be if the mermaids were living now in contemporary conditions? Where would they live? What would they do? Who would they actually be …..?
I travelled to different countries looking for inspiration and stories, and looking for local girls who felt a bit different or special. Influenced by the places, the cultures and the girls’ real lives, I created narratives that I then staged for the tableau photographs.
When I was thinking about the name for the work, I remembered that the traditional Czech expression for a healthy girl is that she is “blood and milk”. Applied to mermaids the words could developed into the expression that she is milk & sea.”
