"In Wonderland” is a kind of self-portrait cycle. An artistic message of “In Wonderland” is to put viewers in a state of absurd and illusion. The cycle presented by me is a pure, classic photography. A polaroid technique applied by me and imperfection of photographic materials are aimed to highlight a magic character of pictures. The cycle “In Wonderland” consists of 5 photographs made with an analogue and polaroid technology. Neither special effects nor computer manipulation have been used in the cycle.Originals in a form of polaroid copies have been scanned and then printed.
