To begin this project, I have collected some old and used toys from several charities and recycling centres. I have also gathered some of my own toys and dolls as well as some of my families best loved toys. I would like to explore the idea of ‘giving a new life’ to these old familiars, much like I did in my book project before.
I decided to take a formal portrait of all of them, a line-up of characters in the spotlight, with inspiration from Carol Harvey. This has enabled me to study them, and to help me create their stories. I plan on taking these toys on a journey, unknowing of the outcome, or where this project will take me photographically.
