In Wonderland

Gusella’s SS16 catalog was inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Alice’s story has the wonderful power to take you to a parallel universe, to make you travel with your imagination. When I was a child I used to be a dreamer and even now, sometimes, all of a sudden I start daydreaming. This might be the reason why Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my favorite tales.

I started to admire Lewis Carroll – the novel’s author – back when I was a photography student. Besides being a mathematician, an inventor, a poet and a priest Lewis Carroll was one of the greatest photographers of the nineteen century. He loved to take photos of young girls and his greatest muse was Alice Liddel, the same Alice that inspired his famous tale and, more recently, our new Gusella catalog.
