Camellia & the Rabbit by Petra Storrs

View all 10 Photos

Evocative of Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, “Camellia & the Rabbit” reinvents teatime through art. The whimsy and delicacy of the performance piece from London artist Rachel Snider is beautifully captured by the series of photographs produced by Petra Storrs. Donned in a tea dress (appropriately so) and breastplate (part of the charm), Snider stars as a youthful girl dwarfed by the immensity of the porcelain teacup she inhabits. Posing with rabbit ears fashioned out of a tea bag, Snider raises a silver spoon in defiance as she stands upon a sugar cube podium. Other variations include Snider among other teatime accessories, with her person hiding behind an oversized teapot or dancing behind a colorful arrangement of macaroons. If only Alice had as much fun as Snider does in these photos — she might have enjoyed the Hatter’s tea party that much more.
