Mr. Semolina-Semolinus

This photograph was inspired by a children's book called Mr. Semolina Semolinus. The pertinent parts go like this: There once was a princess who liked none of her suitors, so she decided to make her own. She mixed together almonds, sugar, and semolina, formed him, and then prayed over him for forty days. Mr. Semolina Semolinus comes to life. He is "five times beautiful and ten times kind". After some adventures the princess and Mr. Semolina Semolinus live together blissfully, but no better.


  1. These photos all look pretty great as they are evolving with this fantasy storyline and then all of this domestic material. Have you done an edit of the keepers that you'd wanna share so we can see where it is all leading? Cuz it's leading somewhere...

  2. I haven't given that much thought yet. Still just trying to make the images..
