Rob Ulitski - 9th Aug 2019

Alice in Wonderland gets a bizarre reimagining in this video for Kyoto Skies by Natalia Cartney. Referencing the fashion photography of the likes of Annie Leibovitz and Helmut Newton, the clip is a surreal trip down the rabbit hole, raw and at times disconcerting.

Focusing on female sexuality, our protagonist is lead to a party populated by a variety of costumed characters – including unicorns, police officers and twisted bunny girls - and looks totally at home. Exploring the cusp of adulthood and the abundance of conflicting emotions we feel when crossing that threshhold, the video is unapologetic and bold, and all the better for it.
