DISCLAIMER FIRST: Mabel Odessey is my sister.
I look for any reason to go to France and visit my sister, who lives in a remote village in the southwestern part of the country. Even though Mabel lives in an isolated location, this has not affected her ability to constantly create new cutting-edge work. Mabel’s shows are not just photographs on a wall. They are installations. In her current show, Mabel is giving each guest a chance to go down the rabbit hole.
” I was immediately captivated by the many levels on which the narrative functions. The challenge of photographing a dream world was very exciting. Perception, time and identity are at the core of both the books and my photographic work. My objective was to evoke the atmosphere rather than to illustrate particular scenes.”
This is part of an article by Mabel Odessey that will be featured in the Spring 2012 Knight Letter number 88, available to LCSNA members.
Not a member of the Lewis Carroll society, I have to ask my sister to send me a copy.
