“Brothers Grimm’s Homeland” by Kilian Schoenberger

WEEKENDEDITION A German photographer has set out to capture the architecture that made the Brothers Grimm tick, with startling and eerie results.

Photographer Kilian Schoenberger has made a name for himself shooting atmospheric scenes of rural Europe, but his latest project ups the ante.

The new series, called “Brothers Grimm’s Homeland,” is inspired by the fairy tales of the brothers and attempts to capture the dwellings that shaped them, including a Victorian-style church and a moss-covered cottage immersed in fog, according to Curbed.

The website My Modern Met describes the series as evoking “the eerie feeling of the quiet before the fright, when every nerve is on edge waiting for the snap of a twig to echo through the trees.” [Curbed, My Modern Met] –Christopher Cameron
