Alexa Demie is an actor, musician, and multi-hyphenate talent who currently stars as Maddy in HBO's Euphoria. So I bought this for the photos (I would assume that many of us did lol) and I did not expect the writing to be that great… and I was correct.The soft focus and dreamy photography depict the truthful chaos and survival of mythical beings in a mortal world. The material on this site may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, cached or otherwise used, except with the prior written permission of Condé Nast. honestly 4/5 stars still for the absolutely ethereal and fantastical photography but 0/5 for any words written on any page in this “erotic” book. Each of the nine tales is set in unique spaces, ranging from suburban homes and parking lots to fantastical sets. This collaboration sees Alexa Demie embody empowered femme mythical beings in a world like ours today.

Shooting since the age of 15, her work is fueled by self-discovery and a contemporary femininity which explore the complex intersection of life as a young woman online and off. It was super cathartic because I hadn’t created artwork since my last book, and there was a real sense of discovery where we were just playing.Could it indeed be that these dark, twisted fantasies are a little more true to life than they seem? It felt half-baked, stories obviously being made up afterwards in an attempt to form some sort of narrative for each photo series in each chapter.

As children growing up with these stories, they can often be extremely sexualized, even if it’s surrealistic. Fairytales is an erotic folklore collection of Petra Collins and Alexa Demie's illustrated short stories.Created in collaboration with Euphoria star and muse Alexa Demie, Collins has just dropped “Fairy Tales,” her latest book in the form of nine erotic short stories based on works by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and more. Petra posted a photograph of a fairy, and I wrote to her and said, ‘I want to be a fairy,’ and she was like, ‘Well, let’s make you a fairy,’” Demie says of the origins of their friendship, laughing. In the Brothers Grimm version of Rapunzel, it’s hinted that the young woman has been locked away in a tower for her promiscuity, while the 17th-century Italian version of Sleeping Beauty sees the central character impregnated by the king during her slumber. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. For Alexa and I, doing this book of fairy tales was almost the most accurate reflection of the world around us today.

When I was a kid, I wasn’t allowed to watch Disney, but I grew up on Hungarian folk tales,” she says. Pre-release, it had already been solidified in pop-culture history with content creators mimicking the ethereal style on social media. Fairy Tales is a picture book about mystical creatures, accompanied with short stories about each one of them. The handwritten text is harder to follow; I’d recommend treating them as poems and re-reading the book to grasp the intensity of the stories told.

Once upon a time, there was a subversive fashion photographer who released her book this week…oh, wait! Alexa is currently working on her first EP, developing and producing film and TV, and engaged in social-impact work focused on equality and representation, especially for the Latinx community and the next generation of youth.
