Photographer's Note

I saw this couple in a street of Pärnu, a small town on the Estonian Baltic coast. I have no idea who - or what - the figure in the strange brown dress was. Maybe a street performer dressed as a Nordic troll (similar to a leprechaun or an elf), maybe a remote controlled doll or - who knows? - a real live troll.

The troll was standing in the street without moving an inch. Only when someone dropped a coin in the cap lying in the street did he/she/it take a few steps, without moving, and bend the head slightly for a few seconds.

Everyone passing by was startled by this strange creature and soon a small crowd had gathered. This woman was not the only one who tried to look the troll straight into its eyes to find out who, or what, this really was.

You can see other peoples' reactions in two workshops.
