Alice in Wonderland statement
I wanted to explore the darker side to Alice in Wonderland and found that in the 1960’s the aspect of Psychedelia was linked to the children’s story. The song ‘White Rabbit’, written 1967, inspired me greatly. British photographer Tim Walker was also a huge inspiration for my work with the use of the white table and background. Walker’s quote ‘portraiture is about exploring someone’s identity’ inspired me to use symbolic props to represent aspects of Wonderland that link to Alice.
