“Wing-Feather Fables” is a collaborative project between the photographer Brenda Gottsabend and the writer Lisa Ahn. Our “once upon a time” is a photograph, followed by a story of 500 words or less. There’s always a bit of magic, a bit of reality, and lots of in-between. You can find the fables by their tags.
About the Artists:
Lisa Ahn writes literary fiction and narrative nonfiction, which sounds more serious than it is. In reality, she makes up quirky tales and stories that dip their toes in magical realism. When she’s not writing, she is reading, homeschooling her two daughters, drinking too much coffee, or pulling socks out of the dog’s mouth. Sometimes all of that happens at once. That’s why the laundry never gets done.
Brenda Gottsabend is a photographer who chases sunlight and shadows, searching for magic with which to fill the frame. Having retired from the corporate world in 2011, she now packs her days with photography, Photoshop, blogging and a daily dose of dark chocolate. In her role as a volunteer graphic designer for Nest, she has discovered her life’s calling. Proving the adage that it’s never too late.
