|Claire Rosen is a photographer blending a fine art sensibility with commercial work to create whimsical imagery inspired by fairy tales, fables, and other children's stories. Her fashion, fine art and advertising work touch on the bizarre and unusual with the themes of vintage circus, burlesque, magic, curiosities and natural science interwoven throughout the images. Rosen is drawn both to beauty and darkness as it exists in life, and her images explore this duality. |
