Mariel Clayton - killer barbies

Mariel Clayton is a doll photographer

"I can't explain how my mind works, or why these ideas come to it.

It started out with a camera and a major interest in travel photography, but a sublime encounter in a Tokyo toy shop led me into the surreal world of Japanese miniatures, and ultimately to the stories that could be told with them.  Since I started working with dolls, I have grown more and more to appreciate what
can be done with them, how the smallest gesture or placement seems to convey volumes. Also, I happen to think it's a damn funny medium."
