Entering the world of alice

The 2018 Pirelli Calendar by Tim Walker captures in the pictures the surreal world of dreams.

His 12 months evoke the fable first published in 1865 by the English mathematician and writer reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the well-known pseudonym of Lewis Carroll: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Inspired by this fantastic narrative, Tim Walker's images are tableaux vivants full of allusions to unlikely situations, to illusory proverbs, cited with a constant reference to English culture.

Many great artists, whenever they refer to this fairy tale, have in fact created a new version, Tim Walker and his interpretation are the last example, through images, apparently far from the most famous representations, featuring 17 characters from the world of fashion, music, cinema and the underground universe.
