Wonderland

Photographs by David Robinson. 19 September-8 November 2003. Photofusion is delighted to present the first UK showing of David Robinson's photographic series Wonderland. Over the past four years, he has documented a diverse selection of some of the world's most popular tourist destinations such as Florida's Holy Land experience, Legoland in Windsor and the Costa del Sol. Each destination is deliberately chosen for its unique western character--a choice which magnifies the man-made structures and parks dominating the surrounding natural landscape.

Gallery open: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10am-6pm; Wednesday 10am-8pm; Saturday 11am-6pm. Gallery closed: Sunday, Monday and Bank Holidays. Free admission and wheelchair access. Photofusion, 17a Electric Lane, Brixton, London SW9 8LA. Tel: 020 7738 5774. Fax: 020 7738 5509.
