'Dolls of Color' is shot on medium format film with studio lights in a controlled environment. The subject matter blends both the beauty of nationality and individual expression that is reflective within a 'toy' collected by adults and children alike. This project also carries the element of time and how things change, through the dolls, and stay the same, with the analog film. The message within this work is to see the beauty within us all and capture the essence of how we saw toys when we were all small kids, peering intently and looking at every detail. I am also trying to capture a nostalgia that I can never get back creating an element of sadness because time only moves forward. However, I am freezing time in a medium of film because it is tangible and impenetrable from the possible destruction that data can create over time to digital files. My hope is to give the viewer that butterfly feeling they would get as a kid when they got a new toy, that love for an inanimate object and the attached emotion that comes with it.
