Toy Photographers Podcast Episode 87 – Escape

While James is on hiatus from the podcast, Kristina invited me to join her for a discussion on the subject of Escape. In Episode 87 we have an enjoyable talk about how the idea of Escape influences our photos.

As you can imagine, Escape is a rather broad topic. Because of this, we each brought a very different interpretation to the concept: one traditional, one more metaphorical. Our conversation ranged from how we approached the concept, execution, mythology, mash-ups and traditional fairy tales.

Because I’m not James, Kristina and I had a few hiccups along the road to bringing you this episode. Listen to Podcast 87: Escape not only for insight into how we each approached this topic, but also to illuminate our relationship. Kristina and I are both headstrong women who must negotiate culture, language and personality differences. Sometimes we’re successful, sometimes not so much.

Below you will see the two images we discuss in Podcast 87: Escape.

  1. While I think that every form of creation is some kind of escape from reality, paradoxically, just to try to explain this reality, I don’t treat my toy photography as form of escapism, but it’s an escape in more literal way: every time I leave house for a photo shoot I just escape. Family life, especially now, is so dense and demanding, that finding a time for yourself is like an escape. And it’s a great escape! 😉
    But photography and also toy photography can be also escape from the social norms, if the society the one lives in is oppressive in some ways, escape from loneliness or – especially now – from te feeling of being lock down.

    Thank You Ladies for this great, and funny, podcast!
