"A Long Time Ago: The Fairytales of Mandy Altimus Pond" is a triptych of classic Grimm stories, composed of 61 color photographs with accompanying tales by Jason Daniel Myers, Margy Vogt, and Andrew Kozma. In them an Ice Queen is mother to Snow White, Cinderella attends a masquerade ball, and a prince must fight a steampunk sorceress to restore Sleeping Beauty's castle. Two and a half years in the making, "A Long Time Ago" is a result of more than 140 talented volunteers who gave their time and talents to reimagine these fairytales.
