cella in wonderland

AHAHAHAH

“Alice opened the door and found that it led into a small passage, not much larger than a rat-hole: she knelt down and looked along the passage into the loveliest garden you ever saw.

How she longed to get out of that dark hall, and wander about among those beds of bright flowers and those cool fountains, but she could not even get her head though the doorway;

‘And even if my head would go through,’ thought poor Alice, `it would be of very little use without my shoulders. Oh, how I wish I could shut up like a telescope! I think I could, if I only know how to begin.’

For, you see, so many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible“.

did you sneak in?

there are so many blissful, colourfully crumbling, abandoned, alluring structures around winnipeg, some of which are covered in vibrant murals of crooked, towering graffiti, others which have moulded and aged into withered shells of metal and concrete: so, i’ve started doing some exploring/creeping/sneaking in the last couple of months to see what i can find.

this shoot in particular was a tough one to get through as we were constantly peeking over our shoulders, crawling passed open, rusting windows, & scurrying around this massive cement castle, but krista was a total champion and stuck it out like a pro~

 

 

48 prize tickets for a big stuffed bear

i had the wonderful opportunity to shoot behind the scenes at the red river ex in winnipeg, manitoba the day before it opened to the public with the beautiful elena & anna~

while it was windy as hell that day as we scurried around the exhibition park, hopping into big piles of stuffed animals and posing on massive, colourful, metal funhouses & vibrant, towering fair rides, it was still fun to snap these shots and get yelled at by carnies.
