Monthly Photo – Lost in a Dream, 2016 series

Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’

Carroll L. (1998) Alice’s adventures in Wonderland
Lost in a Dream, 2016

When I was a little girl, my mam read “Alice in Wonderland” for me and it absolutely freaked me out. Falling into another, strange world not knowing anyone, not even knowing where Alice is, terrified me.

Since then I have re-read the story and a part of me, that little girl inside, still finds it scary. My memories, more like feelings, came back reading the story many years later. It was so inspiring, I wanted to embrace and express these feelings and visualise this strange world the way I imagined it.

Lost in a Dream, 2016

I created powerful images by putting the focus on my model, using simple costumes and effects during the editing process. Through my images I show the story from a completely different point of view: What would it be like to be lost in a dream? Is it real or is it just in your head?

In “My Wonderland” Alice is my sister. She is a grown up woman now, but she will always be my little sister and represents the innocence in this world.
