"It was a chock when I captured them, I did a double shot. Then I left and took some photos of flies and mosquitoes and they simply didn't look the same. People may decide for themselves what is it. The message for them is to approach the pictures with an open mind. I think it's one of those situations when you need to believe to see it. A bunch of people who saw the photos came to tell me that they brought a little more magic to their lives."
So far, the pictures were posted in the social media and are causing quite a debate. They will also be exposed throughout spring in an exposition called "Rossendale Fairies" in the Whitaker Museum in Whitaker Park, Rossendale. The name is a tribute to the fairies of Cottingley story, where two Bradford students claimed they photographed fairies in their garden and, 60 years later, they confirmed it was a fraud.
Hyatt, however, admitis that the cratures he photographed aren't like the characters of traditional stories.
"Everything is stereotyped. Life grows everywhere. I don't believe they are just smaller versions of us who go to their houses to take a cup of tea in the end of the day. From my experience, they were just having fun and dancing in the sunlight. These are just beautiful images and beauty can make people believe."
What about you? Do you think these fairies are for real? Tell me in the comments!
