Photo Projects: “Plastic People” by Emma Woodward

This term has once again been a good one for the sheer quality of work being produced by students on the Advanced SLR/DSLR course at Birmingham Botanical Gardens. This example, a slide show of images by Emma Woodward, is, I think, a completely new and unique slant on something many have done before – using toy figures to create little tableaux.

What I especially like about some of these images is the intricate set-ups which never attempt to completely mislead the viewer. We know these are train set figures more or less from the start but this just adds to the magic as you find yourself becoming immersed in this strange world.

It is hoped that the images you see here will be the basis for an exhibition some time later in 2011. Watch this space…

  1. Hey, this is pretty nice. Makes me think of a photogrpaher called Slinkachu (http://slinkachu.com). Your work is more poetic though.

    Congrats Emma, really nice diorama images. Even the lighting in some of them is believable.
