This photo was taken as a publicity shot for an exhibition I’m curating called Totem, Dolls with Souls as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival.
Totem is a collection of over 100 dolls created by artists to reflect how they feel themselves to be inside. These dolls are more than just simple childrens toys, they are powerful symbols of who we think we are, the internal workings of the human mind given form and are honest, hearfelt expressions of self.
This photograph pictures the doll I created for the show.
It is a straight photograph taken on digital camera with no post editing.
Totem is on at Fed Square from the 25th of Sept to the 12th of Oct, 2008
“Tea party in the garden” was featured in the group Art of the Doll
