New Yorkers Dressed Up as Old Dolls = The Best

by Elizabeth Thompson

A new book and exhibition by photographer Annie Collinge asks a simple, but important, question: What would random New Yorkers look like dressed as old dolls? Collinge, who has been working on the project for the past few years, approached strangers on the street and subway who bared a likeness to dolls she'd found at thrift stores and asked them to pose for her. The result is Five Inches of Limbo, which launches tonight at London's Ti Pi Tin gallery, and we've included a few highlights below via It's Nice That. The book includes poems by Margaret Atwood, with each juxtaposition between doll and human both normalizing the natural oddness of antique dolls while celebrating the uniqueness of New Yorkers.
