“Propeller Girl and Other Tales” is a photo book with surrealistic stories written by the Irish photographer Michael Ryan. For years, Ryan has fabricated the stories for her daughter, and produced the pictures as the “proofs” of the tales. Being inspired by the traditional Victorian fairytales, particularly from the illustrations of Alice in Wonderland, Ryan’s work is a bit “on the dark side”. His daughter, who played the roles of the Propeller Girl, Eleanor Grumpy, the Girl in the Cage, is the protagonist throughout the whole book. For this event, Michael Ryan will read selected stories with slide show; the renowned drama actress Huang Fangling will read them in Chinese. The distinguished scholar and photo critic Gu Zheng is invited as the special guest, to have the conversation with Ryan, and give his understanding on the works.
