"Doll Face 6"
by sabine7 / October 10, 2007
Darlene Shiels photographs a range of subjects, but who can resist the mussed hair of these doll faces? Cropped so that the focus is fully on the perfect big eyes and clear skin, these photos very succinctly point out that perfection is completely artificial – plastic, even. Coy, lipstick just so, each one the coquette. How can we even think that these are toys for little girls?
