First off I’d like to thank Shelly for inviting me to contribute to the stunning world of Stuck in Plastic through the “Why?” series. I feel truly privileged, but also a little apprehensive. My reasons for taking up Toy Photography are something I wasn’t too sure about until I sat down to write this. Well, …

Eyes without a face

I was once asked “What is so special about Stormtroopers? Why are you using them so often?..” I had literally more than a hundred answers for that one question, all related to their signature presence in Star Wars series. But those were all emotional explanations.

When I began writing this, I went about it all-wrong… I treated it as an assignment. “Why do I photograph toys…?” Hmmmmm. I went off on an “artsy-fartsy” tangent and got all philosophical. “I PHOTOGRAPH TOYS BECAUSE THEY ARE THERE!” Or something like, “Well, often times my figures express how …
