Wonderland

02/12/2009

Yeondoo Jung has created series of surreal photographs called “Wonderland” which represents adolescent with the eyes of children aged five to seven.

Here is the story behind the photos:  “For four months, Jung oversaw art classes in four kindergardens in Seoul and collected 1,200 drawings by children between the ages of five and seven. After pouring through them, he carefully selected 17 drawings and interpreted their meanings. Then he recruited 60 high school students by passing out handbills at their schools in which he invited them to act out the scenarios in the children’s drawings. In order to recreate faithfully drawing details such as dresses with uneven sleeves or buttons of different sizes, he convinced five fashion designers to custom make the clothing for the photo shoot. He also made props unlike any scale found in reality but similar to those in the drawings.”
