I have chosen to follow in the footsteps of Robert Smithson, a great installation photographer, and use mirrors and my dolls in the natural environment.
My aim is to create surreal, dream like images, with a raw and dark edge, much like the imagery used in Jan Svankmajer’s ‘Alice’
First of all I strung up the dolls in a tree, with fishing wire. This way, the wires were barely visible, and would take little editing. I then positioned the mirrors around the floor, looking up at the dolls, and then on the upturned tree roots nearby, looking at the dolls from the side. Here is a selection of photographs from the shoot.
