Cinderella Tours Europe

Cinderella Tours Europe (1998 – 2001), 20 Fuji Crystal Archive Prints, 36” x 36”

Inspired by numerous interviews conducted during a four-month research trip around the Caribbean. For many of that region Europe is a place of unattainable dreams, regarded in the same way as Europeans think of Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire.

The dreamer is wrapped in the narrative of Cinderella, transformed into a pair of golden shoes and transported around the major sites of Europe. On this Grand Tour of desire, the shoes are photographed in front of familiar landmarks in the style of so many tourist photographs.
