DESCRIPTIONWhat was your favorite childhood book? Mine definitely wasn't "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". In my imagination I preferred to travel among the stars, fight space pirates, saving princesses and discovering new planets, but sometimes I had to come back to Earth, which was very boring and then along came Alice to show me one more doorway to escape from the reality. And that's why on the day I found giant mushrooms in the forest, I decided to go back into my childhood, into Wonderland and recreate the feeling that everything is possible and the doorway in my own Wonderland is still open. I used stabalized moss, some mushrooms I made from polymer clay to make this photo. All the special effects are real and they were created in realtime using black wire and aroma stick.
