"Photographing Fairies" is a 1997 fantasy drama film directed by Nick Willing. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Steve Szilagyi. Set in post-World War I England, the story follows Charles Castle (played by Toby Stephens), a skeptical photographer who becomes entangled in a world of enchantment and mystery.

Charles becomes intrigued by a series of photographs depicting fairies taken by two young girls, Elsie (played by Emily Woof) and Frances (played by Ben Kingsley). Initially dismissing the images as a hoax, Charles begins to question his skepticism as he delves deeper into the girls' story. The film explores themes of belief, magic, and the blurry line between reality and fantasy.

As Charles investigates, he finds himself immersed in a captivating world where the magical and the mundane intersect. The story unfolds as he grapples with his own doubts and the possibility that there might be more to the girls' claims than meets the eye. "Photographing Fairies" is a tale of wonder, imagination, and the enduring power of belief in the extraordinary.
