Anna Gaskell’s cinematic approach towards photography is enough to set her apart, but it is the way she presents her subject matter that truly defines her as a photographer. Her series Wonder and Override features a loose interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Alice is immediately recognizable in her yellow dress and blue pinafore, but that’s where her resemblance to the animated film stops. Anna’s images of Alice are disturbingly eerie. You get the sense that things aren’t quite what they seem and that there are hidden messages in the photograph.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
