Artist's Description


MCN: C2SF4-JQTMC-YF4TD

I’ve always loved Andersen fairy tales, and this one is no exception, although it’s one of the saddest ones (amongst a whole lot of tragedies). The Little Match Stick Girl is about the preventable death of a little girl and still as valid today as it probably was then, what with all the runaways and homeless people on the streets everywhere. I tried to tell the story with the minimal amount of symbols, using nothing but a box of matches in front of a grubby wall and a picture of snow I took a while ago. It’s one of my favourite images I took this year so far. I love the simplicity and singular message in it.

Part of my new series of images for licensing on Arcangel-Images – use this code: SYST-0191

Created with my own photographs in Photoshop, no stock used.
