Charles Dodgson became renowned as Lewis Carroll after he released the popular children’s story, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, in 1865. Not only an author and a mathematics lecturer at Oxford University, Lewis Carroll also pursued an intensive photographic activity from 1856. The Liddell sisters including Alice Liddell were his favorite sitters and the latter, his ‘ideal child-friend’. Not only did the young girl inspire his books’ main character, did she also model in theatrical as well as exotic costumes for many of his photographies. Shy and ill at ease among adults, Lewis Carroll preferred the company of children and especially young girls while almost half of his 3000 photographs represent youngsters. Some of his portraits - 30 of his whole production depict nude and semi-nude children- have shocked contemporary observers that have since questioned the nature of the photographer’s relationship with young Alice, suggesting he had pedophilic urges that he had yet never accomplished. Other specialists have defended the idea that nude children representations were quite standard in the Victorian era - Julia Margaret Cameron produced many - as they were praised as the ultimate depiction of grace and innocence. Yet uncertainty remains, Lewis Carroll’s photographies and literature illustrate a strange inner world and reveal his erotic imagination described by Vladimir Nabokov as presenting a ‘pathetic affinity’ with that of Lolita’s narrator while, fueled by a counterculture psychedelic vision, Tim Burton believes his stories are ‘drugs for children’.
