Upon completion of the painting of the dolls, I wanted to take place them in a shoot, contrasting them against a white background. As a group, the dolls looked great. A student commented that they looked like something out of a horror story, but a ‘fun’ one, which I felt summed them up perfectly.
All of the dolls gathered together created a brilliant and bright aesthetic.
We set the studio up with soft box lighting, to maximise the intensity of the colour of the dolls, with the illumination of the room.
I set the dolls up, as though they were having a school picture, or a family portrait, in order to personify them.
