Photographer Uses Photoshop to Transport Sick Children to a Magical Christmas Wonderland

Embarking on a photography project that aims to bring magic to seriously ill children, photographer Karen Alsop has been using her talent to transport sick children from their hospital beds to magical winter wonderlands where they can pay Santa Claus a visit.

The idea of Santa visiting sick children around the festive peroid is nothing new, but the Melbourne-based digital artist decided to take the tradition a step further by including a green screen as she photographed the moment they met, as well as a host of props. Later on using Photoshop Alsop then placed her subjects into a host of locations and scenarios in the hope of putting a smile on the childrens faces and giving them a sense of hope – “I wanted to give them a gift that brings hope and I wanted to free them, at least in a creative sense…from the confines of the hospital ward and the reality of their situation. My main aim was to rekindle their faith of what the future holds for each of them,” she writes on her website.
