Ann Eringstam

In Search of Wonderland

In her photography Ann Eringstam places an idealized, non-realistic image of reality over against our own ideas about norms, reality and identity. The images from the series In Search of Wonderland were shot in an overwhelmingly beautiful landscape. They are reminiscent of the Romantic, nationalistic images of yesteryear. But just as in Alice in Wonderland, the viewer is drawn into a terrifying real unreality. Concepts like true and false don't apply here. The half-hidden, fairy-tale-like, almost unearthly female figures appear to be searching for something – something that seems unattainable.

Ann Eringstam (Sweden, 1977) graduated from the School of Photography at Göteborg University, in the city where she still lives and works. In 2009 she received a grant from the Hasselblad Foundation. Her work has been seen in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Northwest Europe.
