"Up Street"

Leigh 2009

Etsy


My love for photographing mannequins started with this photo that I saw in 2007 from Carol Watson I have quite a few that I have yet to do anything with yet, but I found this girl in NYC an loved that she was my bald one arm mannequin that I have had on my banner for awhile now. I get so much strong emotion from their expressions more so than photographing humans at times, weird, but another great thing is they do not move and sit still when you want a shot. ;)

These photos are stunning. I love the mannequins. They are lovely, indeed.

Your talent is amazing to me. It makes me yearn for my earlier days as photographer.

You are so inspiring.

I agree, your photography is very unique and so inspiring! These mannequins are elegant yet eery at the same time. It makes for creative ideas and an out of this world imagination!

I warned you I was going to shamelessly swipe this video.

I gave you credit for it so I hope you don't mind!

Your work is striking and witty too. I find your model amusing, but she doesn't speak much ;)

You're amazing, Leigh.

And I agree, they're more than just lifeless dolls.

I love photographing them too...it seems like they have so many stories to tell with their lifeless, skinny little bodies.
