I explored the idea of twisting the traditional meanings involved in fairy tales. Red Riding Hood is always portrayed as a sweet and kind girl but perhaps there is something more sinister about her. I wanted to suggest this rather than change the story. The hood covering her face and her facial expression are enough to show that she is hiding something. I used Photoshop and stitched six images together.
