Red Riding Hood Sonja Hurtardo

Closes 8 January 2017

This series of twelve images by Hackney based photographer Sonya Hurtado explores the imaginary world of childhood. A world where children encounter and must navigate complex feelings of isolation, fear and despair. Set in the context of fairy tales and children’s stories, the images are conceived almost like paintings, full of colour and vibrancy. With inspiration from surrealism, film and much more, the manipulation of shadow, light and colour creates a playful and at times almost sinister atmosphere.
