Carroll’s photos hint at deeper childhood wonderland
Lewis Carroll is best known as the author of the Alice in Wonderland books, but the shy, stammering Oxford mathematics professor, whose real name was Charles Dodgson, was as much an accomplished photographer as he was a writer. ‘Dreaming in Pictures,’ now on view at the Art Institute, presents 76 of the more than 3,000 photographic images Carroll produced in his life. Dating from the 1850s through the 1870s, the photos are a stunning glimpse of Carroll’s take on childhood, and all the more interesting to anyone familiar with the Alice books.
