These short tales about the magic time of teacakes-and-jam afternoons are drawn from
memories and impressions that surge up from the dappled depths of childhood. They have
been given new life through the rediscovered imagery of fairytales by the author.
Like Thumbelina, the child in Andersen’s tale who, silent and passive, faces life’s vicissitudes, the characters experience adventures that are at times enigmatic, at times quite banal in a wild, yet familiar nature.
Nostalgic photographic shot evoke a world reminiscent of fairy tales in which the familiar may become disquietening and the intimate strange.
