The book will be released nationally by Workman Publishing in the fall of 2012. There was no digital manipulation used to create these images, just thousands of grueling hours of training!

Alex and Felix

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Characteristic for their work is the staging that precedes their actual shooting. Based on divers objects and materials alexandfelix are crafting backdrops for the pictures, creating imaginative, often somewhat absurd and surreal worlds. It is their conscious decision to build their sceneries in real terms and not on a computer screen. Thanks to the realistic backgrounds, the pictures never give the impression of being artificial but look vibrant and playful. Link here. Photobucket Photobucket

Penny Cottee

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket With this series 'Toys' Penny Cottee has endeavoured to show, not only the details, beauty & personality of the items but also to create a suggestion of history, to remind the viewer of childhood relationships with toys from their past. The series started with a selection of Cottee's own toys, still very much cherished, and was expanded by asking friends for any contributions and searching for discarded treasures on the internet. Each toy is photographed as a portrait, and presented to the viewer as such, not as an inanimate object, but as a valuable and important discovery. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
