Chloe Barcelou is In Wonderland Alice in Wonderland has been a favourite of many generations, having an especially profound meaning in my creative endeavours. Dreams are where my visions for photo shoots are often born and Wonderland is a story of dreams containing nonsensical magic and dialogue with colors and imagined imagery too vivid and profound to ignore.  I fell down the rabbit hole about a year ago when I started my collection of Alice in Wonderland inspired photographs and have not yet crawled out. Sometimes working by myself for hours on end creating props or working with a small team of models and fellow artists designing and building sets, I've created a Wonderland all my own, using Lewis Carroll's vision. The artist herself, Chloe Barcelou Twinkle twinkle, little bat, how I wonder what you're at? Up above the world you fly, like a tea tray in the sky. (Wonderland, Chapter 7) The label said, “Eat Me.” Cheshire Cat. "We're all mad here." (Wonderland, Chapter 6) Said the Cheshire Cat, with a grin.  (Wonderland, Chapter 6) Mad Hatter'sTea- "…You've lost your muchness!" (Wonderland, Chapter 7) The Mad Hatter - "Have you any idea why a raven is like a writing desk?" (Wonderland, Chapter 7) WhiteRabbit- "Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it's getting!" (Wonderland, Chapter 1) ...said Alice, very much confused, “I don't think...,” “Then you shouldn't talk,” said The Hatter. (Wonderland, Chapter 7) "But I don't want to go amongst mad people,” Alice remarked.  (Wonderland, Chapter 6) “There is a place, like no place on earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger. Some say to survive it, you need to be as mad as a hatter. Which, luckily, I am." (Alice in Wonderland, 1865) "Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.  “I've had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can't take more.”  “You mean you can't take LESS,” said the Hatter.  “it's very easy to take MORE than nothing." (Wonderland, Chapter 7) "Have I gone mad?” Alice said. “I'm afraid so!” said the Mad Hatter. “You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are." (Wonderland, Chapter 7)
