This series of Fairy-tale inspired photographs contains a cast of twenty–six characters from a variety of childhood fables each one illustrating a different letter of the alphabet. Each portrait arbitrarily fuses disordered cultural fragments of countless
stories, fairy-tales and idiomatic expressions.

By randomly mixing and matching different cultural myths, I construct an unfamiliar and bizarre world from seemingly recognizable childhood icons and scenes such as a frog, prince or glass slipper. Through this process of cross cultural confusion I create my own fairy tale characters. Using these newly developed hybrids and inbreds, I investigate social constructions of age and gender and I allude to taboos of gender role play, adult and childhood fantasies, and conventional ideas of beauty and the grotesque.

I wish to continue exploring these themes and produce this book of photographs and their accompanying text as a limited edition artists book and create a world where fantasy and reality merge.
