    Blomqvist invites the viewer into her mythical and mysterious world, inhabited by children, or their spirits, and a few imaginary animal friends. In the series The Elephant Girl, Blomqvist explores death, friendship, the ephemeral and the inevitable passage of time. To create this dream-like image, she built her props and a set, complete with a painted backdrop, sewed the clothing, photographed all the elements separately then digitally assembled them in post-production.
