Wendy With Wings Poster
An abrasive Saga.
This applies just as much to Saga Wendotte herself as the stories she creates. Here, In Between Realities nothing is as it seems...
Fairytale-like scenes with cute little children, which at first seem cute with an innocent beauty, though a closer look reveals that they are anything but harmless. Instead, the images pose important questions about today’s society.
Saga Wendotte is a photographer and artist who dreamt about being an artist at an early age, because she loved to draw and did it constantly. With her mother being an illustrator, a creative profession wasn’t out of the question. But in her teens, Wendotte realised that it was "better to go for something more sensible" so she studied science, specialising in mathematics and data, which wasn’t a big surprise as her father is a qualified engineer. She got a camera during her first year at high school and while she’d previously used Photoshop for her drawings, she would now use it to manipulate her photographs. Immediately after high school, she was admitted at Fotoskolan in Stockholm where she continued creating her own worlds rather than documenting reality with her photography. Her dream of being an artist finally outweighed “what was sensible”.
From her exhibition ‘In between Realities’ comes this photo of a young girl in a pink dress, surrounded by butterflies.
