Vintage Fairy Tales

“Love me or leave me
Or let me be lonely
You won’t believe me, I love you only
I’d rather be lonely
Then happy with somebody else”
( Walter Donaldson / Gus Kahn )

Come and take a peek into the whimsical world of
Vintage Fairy Tales

I'd love to meet Rebecka Ryberg Skött, a mixed message photographer living in Malmo. I'm sure we'd have lots to talk about... For a start, she's Swedish (land of my dreams, or one of them, at least) and she loves collecting vintage things. She currently has a passion for old toys and dolls which she photographs.

Rebecka seems to have a great sense of humour and often associates her images with a song.

Please Come Back Baby

"Yes, my baby left me,
Never said a word.
Was it something I done,

Something that she heard?

Now that I stand at my window,

Wring my hands and moan.

All I know is that
The one I love is gone."
( Elvis Presley, Arthur Crudup )

She also has a wonderful eye for colour
She just happens to be a big fan of Julie Arkell and is very inspired by her work

Reason enough to visit her photo gallery, don't you think?

I think that Rebecka's work would look stunning in a nursery, child's bedroom or play space. Her photographs are printed on fully archival acid and lignin free paper, with pigmented ink. They are limited edition, signed and numbered. She doesn't have a shop but you can contact her by email if you're interested in any of her pieces or want to know more. Enjoy!
