“Behind the Lens:
Meet the visionary artist behind this extraordinary project, Shalev Man.
With a quest for “good,” he embarked on a photographic adventure that led him to discover the intricate relationship between “good” and “evil.” This exploration birthed the enchanting concept of the Apocalyptic Fairy.
The Apocalyptic Fairy:
Combining elements of folklore and ancient tales, the Apocalyptic Fairy emerges as a powerful being with both good and evil aspects. With her roots in mythical lore, she possesses magical powers and the ability to influence events, even casting spells on those who harm nature. This series captures her dance of transformation, symbolizing a call for a new world order and harmony with nature.
A Yearlong Tale:
This photography factionary unfolds over a full year, meticulously captured across the four seasons: winter, spring, autumn, and summer. Nature, the purest reflection of goodness, takes center stage in the imagery, emphasizing its beauty, life, and cyclical rhythms.
Connecting Nature and Humanity:
Shalev Man masterfully intertwines nature with the human world through the Apocalyptic Fairy. As we witness her captivating presence, she becomes the bridge between nature and humankind, urging us to reflect on our actions and their impact on the planet.
A Message for Change:
The global pandemic, which unfolded during the project’s duration, eerily mirrored the narrative Shalev Man was photographing. The Apocalyptic Fairy’s dance serves as a profound message, encouraging us to care for nature, respect all living creatures, and preserve the delicate balance between humans and their environment.
