Australian photographer Kate O’Brien’s photos are fantasy snow globes, arranged just so. Not a shiny curl out of place, not a flower askew, they’re bottled candy bliss. An avid collector, Kate finds inspiration everywhere. Online auctions, liquidators and op-shops are her hunting grounds when in search of the perfect piece to finalize her vision. Driven by a deep love of Victoriana and the macabre, Kate often spends years looking for weird and wonderful items to include in her photographs. O’Brien lives in Brisbane with her husband, two cats and five ducks. There she continues to immortalize an ever-growing assortment of muses, each image a sugar-dusted memento of an eerie world in a simpler time.
