Tiffany knew that Mikey was playing her for a fool, stepping out with that jezebel from down the hall at number 3. She knew she should tell that lying, cheating scum that she was done with him – give him back his dime store ring and catch the first bus back to Virginia.

Of course, she couldn’t.

She was a slave to her heart… her careless, careless heart.


Inspiration for this piece

Well, I got sick and tired of working with models who turned up late (if they turned up at all), who couldn’t follow direction worth a damn, and demanded a private change room with a bowl full of M&M’s – but only red ones mind!! So I figured I would find me some models who were always available, any time of the day or night, who were never precious and cost me peanuts!

Ok… so the above is a total lie ;)
I recently saw the work of this fabulous artist who cuts out images from book covers and then carefully folds them to create 3D dioramas and just knew I had to try it for myself. Now I am addicted! What a wonderful way to tell a story….

If anyone has any pulp fiction novels from the 1940’s to 1960 just collecting dust, or hidden away in a box being chewed on by rats, that you wouldn’t mind parting with PLEASE contact me.

    this is really cute Rhana

  • Thanks Juilee :) I had a heap of fun creating it. Stuffed up first time round for my first idea, I cut out the people the wrong way… and nearly turned Mikey into a Van Gogh with a careless slip of the stanley knife… but it was fun!

    This is really cool Rhana … and really different. Hope we’ll see some more of these!

  • It is different Nat, and I think that is it’s major appeal. That and the fact that it gets me out of the house looking for books to massacre, and also gets me away from the computer for the prep and shoot phase. I have also always longed to be able to tell a story with my photography….

    fantastic! I used dinosaur models (t-rex on a rampage!) for a class project, but this is very clever. Great story!

  • Now I would love to see those dinosaurs!
