Boy do I love fairy tales, and any kind of art based off them. Movies, books, photos, paintings, you name it. Two books I would recommend for those in agreement are The Book of Lost Things and Of Bees and Mist. Especially the latter. In terms of movies, it is more difficult than one would expect to find good, dark, fairy tales. Not sure why. Anyways the photos are from Miwa Yanagi, Lissy Elle, and Annie Collinge. Also, the painter Alejandra Alarcon has a tumblr with a lot of great fairy tale type images if you want some more. While writing this I've realized there really aren't any good synonyms for fairy tale. Sorry.
