It started out with a camera and a major interest in travel photography, but a sublime encounter in a Tokyo toy shop led me into the surreal world of Japanese miniatures, and ultimately to the stories that could be told with them.

Also, I happen to think it's a damn funny medium. I'm entirely self-taught in photography. " - Mariel Clayton
