Wengenn In Wonderland by Queenie Liao

Chinese artist and photographer Queenie Liao creates amazing scenes around her sleeping boy for her project entitled 'Wengenn in Wonderland'.

"... in 2010, after seeing the work of Ms. Adele Enersen on her sleeping daughter, I began to experiment with similar ideas with my then three-month-old son Wengenn."

"Where did I get the ideas about decorating the backgrounds? Well, I grew up indulging myself in fairy tales. In particular, as I read the beloved stories over and over again, my eyes would often be fixated at the beautiful illustrations, immersing myself completely with the stories. Those fairy tales from my childhood gave me a multitude of ideas to try out."

"Every day just before Wengenn’s nap, I would imagine him being the main character in one of my favorite episodes, and “paint” a background setting with plain clothes, stuffed animals, and other common household materials, just like how an artist would with her paint brushes."

"After Wengenn fell asleep, I would place him at the center of the theme I’d created and start taking pictures. My vision was to create a series of photos portraying him exploring his imaginary, enchanting fairytale-like world."
