Yeondoo Jung - Wonderland

The other day we received a mailing from a paper supplier at the office. It showed Wonderland project by Korean artist Yeondoo Jung. I was very taken by the idea to use the framework of children’s drawings. In this series, the artist takes a literal approach in translating information between actual children’s drawings and staged photographs. Space and distance are distorted as the artist’s photographs offer a mix of reality and fantasy in the interpretation of a child’s view of the world.

The photos are very colourful and vibrant. Such a simple, yet wonderful idea!

Jonathan Hare

Sometimes I come across the most wonderful vintage children books in local thriftshops. One of my latest finds is this gorgeous book about Jonathan Hare (Hippie het Haasje) from 1964. The beautiful illustrations are by Czech artist Josef Kábrt.
