Tonight sees the launch of a new book by photographer Annie Collinge at Ti Pi Tin bookstore up on Stoke Newington High Street in London. Some of you should get down there, but we appreciate that others of you are perhaps thousands of miles away. So here for your delectation are some spreads from the book and some close-ups of the images within.
The book is called Five Inches of Limbo and documents a project Annie conducted in New York, sorting through thrift stores to find unusual dolls heaped in piles. She photographed them and then asked strangers she met on the subway to dress up like them, shooting portraits in their bizarre new costumes. The results are creepy and often hilarious, with each doll given a fresh new character by their human counterpart.
The book itself brings all of these photos together alongside five short poems by Margaret Atwood. Designed by Claire Huss, it’s a tidy little package, and we’re looking forward to getting our hands on one later. See (some of) you there!
