Play With Me aka Fifty Shades of Plastic
Do you shoot Barbie porn?
When people hear I shoot dolls, immediately they think Barbie dolls and right after that, they talk about all the things Barbie used to do with Ken, GI Joe, other Barbies, etc. That is what people assume I do all day.
Well, I rarely actually shoot Barbies, typically it is more along the lines of Fashion Royalty dolls by Integrity Toys but that's not the point. I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could make them erotic in a tasteful sort of way.
I was greatly inspired by a short film I'd seen that was made for GQ Spain, deeply erotic and not about fashion one bit ;) (Though he did wear a nice suit) So, I used that as my jumping point.
The entire photo series was set to music and made into a short video which you can see here. (I wouldn't watch around small kids or work, even though it's just dolls)
Here are a selection of shots from that project.
