EMERGING: Of The Holy Blood
Jennifer Mehigan – aka Of The Holy Blood – is a busy woman. The Singapore-based designer, artist and creator of Cavity zine combines fine art sensibility with internet-age experimentation, and there are hours of visual bingeing to be done on her network of websites; she’s some sort of a blogging guru.
You might not know Nabil Elderkin's name, but you'll definitely have seen his work as NABIL. The Australian photographer and filmmaker extraordinaire is behind some of the most iconic photos and music videos of the past decade, including Antony & The Johnson's Cut the World' and Frank Ocean's 'Pyramids'. Wonderland get into the mind of […]
EMERGING: Josh Greet
We’ve all spent our share of time scrolling Tumblr’s infinite supply of animated gifs, but young photographer Josh Greet took things further and started making his own. And in between shooting gifs for Adidas Originals and Illustrated People, the Plymouth College of Art graduate isn’t short of work.
SEVEN WONDERS… Great girl groups
The Spice Girls formed back in 1994. Scary, right? Eighteen years, 74 million album sales and four solo careers later, they reunited yesterday for the Olympics Closing Ceremony. Part business plan and part musical endeavour, girl groups have been spicing up our lives (sorry) since the 50s. Wonderland thought we’d pay our respects to some […]
TRACES: The secret gallery

But first you need […]
BEST & WORST: Biopic performances
Filming is well underway on a new movie about Princess Diana, with Naomi Watts heading the cast. She seems to be pulling off the blonde bouffant and 90s chic pretty well, although there’s a definite hint of Camilla Parker Bowles in the photographs that surfaced today. All a bit awkward. In biopic anticipation, we’ve rounded […]
DEUTSCHE BORSE PHOTOGRAPHY PRIZE: Stefanie Braun
Photography is big business now, and there’s none bigger than the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. Now in its sixteenth year, the prize clocks in at a higher value than the Turner Prize. Wonderland talks to curator Stefanie Braun, who put together this year’s stunning show.
BEST& WORST: Celeb name changes
First he was Calvin Cordozar Broadus Junior, then Snoop Doggy Dog, and eventually just Snoop Dogg. But now the Dogg has decided on a new spirit animal and released his first single as Snoop Lion. To celebrate his new direction, Wonderland count down the best and worst celebrity name changes.
MICACHU AND THE SHAPES: Never
Mica Levi is an avant-garde pop sensation. The charismatic frontwoman of Micachu and the Shapes is just as comfortable jamming on homemade instruments as playing with the London Sinfonietta orchestra. Wonderland caught up with her about the release of her new album, Never.
