DOLLS' HOUSE series

Elaborating on my previous project of fantasy portraits of Little People, Dolls' House Dramas created vignettes using Photoshop. Shrinking friends and family and placing them into little fantasies has surprised me by reinforcing what we already know somewhere: that dolls' houses are not just cosy, but also rather sinister and claustrophobic. Trapped in them are the powerless parts of childhood as well as the wholesome.

These are enormously elaborate and labour-intensive pieces that with any luck ended up looking effortless.
