I am a Minneapolis based photographer with a mild obsession with Barbie. My goal is to create fun and sometimes-satirical photographs that will put a smile on your face. I love taking photos of Barbie dolls. Why? Well, love her or hate her, it's hard to deny that Barbie isn't just a doll; she is a cultural icon. I create scenes with the dolls that have a sense of whimsy mixed with a little sarcasm. Are my photos just fun, social commentaries, or a mix of both? I let the viewer decide. Just like the doll herself, the photos can mean different things to different people.
