vintage doll portraits by gigi on flickr

i want to invite you guys to have a look at the ongoing series of vintage doll and figurine portraits i’m currently working on. i photograph the dolls in their “natural habitat” at thrift and antique shops and do not pose them. sometimes the results are more surprising than i think they’ll be.




i am having a really good time with this collection, and perhaps i should mention that this post is sort of a hint about my big creative endeavor? more details to come, soon… 🙂

    thanks pal — and it is exciting! 🙂

    doesn’t that doll on the right in the last photo look so mad at the other one?

  5. Burt Says:

    Some of these dolls look like they are pretty guilty. I think they may have murdered a teapot or two in the shops you’ve found them in. I hope you are only photographing them and aren’t bringing them into your home.

    so sad about those murders.
