The renowned British photographer Tim Walker, well known for unmistakable style of extravagant sets and romantic motifs, shot the 2018 Pirelli Calendar and revisited one of the classic stories of British literature: “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. His inspiration came not only from Lewis Carroll’s fantastic story, but most importantly from the illustrations that Carroll himself had entrusted to John Tenniel for the first edition of 1865. In order to convey his idea of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Walker has portrayed a cast of 18 personalities, both established and upcoming, including musicians, actors, models, and political activists.
