A Quiet Day in Wonderland

quiet-day-wonderland-Nikita-GillA New Dawn

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.

This project is a look at the tranquility in little rituals and nature. It is a soothing series that follows the truths of early dawns to quiet midnight secrets, and moments spent alone, but not lonely. It was undertaken to understand the concept of reflections, shadows and post processing of colour to make an image appear extraordinary.

Speicherstadt (lit. city of warehouses) in Hamburg, Germany is the largest warehouse district in the world where the buildings stand on oak logs along canals near the Elbe.  The district was built  from 1883 to 1927 as a free zone to transfer goods without paying customs. The warehouses were built with different support structures, but Andreas Meyer created a Neo-Gothic red outer layer with little towers, alcoves, andglazed terra cotta ornaments. The warehouses are multi-storey buildings with entrances from water and land. Over the last years the area has been renovated to have museums, offices and entertainment options, but the old feel of the area remains. At sunset, the Speicherstadt is engulfed in a mysterious atmosphere when the facades of the red brick buildings and steel bridges are artfully illuminated.

Geamana is an abandoned village in Romania. The place makes for some intriguing pictures but it has a very sad story. In 1978 the communist regime forced the inhabitants of Geamana to move out so that an artificial lake could take its place that served as a kind of catch-basin for the nearby RoČ™ia Poieni’s copper mine contaminated sludge to flow into. The lake, is a giant crater, filled mostly with acid red water. The tower of the church, the roofs of a few houses and various dead treetops are the only remnants today. (more…)
