Polixeni Papapetrou | Between Worlds

We are delighted to present the fabulous work “Between Worlds” by Polixeni Papapetrou here on Actual Colors May Vary:

In Between Worlds, Australian artist Polixeni Papapetrou has created photographs of her children and their friends dressed as animals dancing upon their own liminal world.
