Nikita Gill is a London-based photographer, digital artist and brand designer. Her series of photo manipulation titled “A Quiet Day in Wonderland” is about peace and meditation over the course of a magical, but quiet day in the world of Wonderland. The project was created using her own photography in combination with stock photography and it has been heavily edited.
