I love to bring stories to life through my photography so I am excited to bring you this series of photographs inspired by the book Where the Wild Things are by Maurice Sendak.
This is a beautiful book that touches so people on so many levels, I look at the words and think it is beautifully written yet appeals to children as well as adults with some poignant themes and a story about love and home.
So before I share the video… Let the Wild Rumpus start!!
I’ll eat you up!
“I have nothing now but praise for my life. I’m not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more…What I dread is the isolation. … There are so many beautiful things in the world which I will have to leave when I die, but I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready.”
“He’s just a boy, pretending to be a wolf, pretending to be king”
“There should be a place where only the things you want to happen, happen”
“And now,” cried Max, “let the wild rumpus start!”
“And [he] sailed back over a year
and in and out of weeks
and through a day
and into the night of his very own room
where he found his supper waiting for him
and it was still hot”
“And Max, the king of all wild things, was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.”
