Photoshoot with Pyktures: Rabbit hole
It started with some inspiration from an old doily dress that I found for 15 bucks at a thrift store on Saint Laurent street, and it resulted in a blend of urban and natural settings to create a dark world in which this doll wanders. We both wanted to pull away from a fashion vibe and give an eerie feel to this photo shoot. On the processing side, finding the right colors was a challenge for Yannick, as he attempted to fit some kind of old Asian horror film aesthetic. I believe the results of his hard work are exceptional.
We’re not sure if this dolly character roams by herself or if she is amongst many Alice-esque dolls wandering at different places at the same time in this “Wonderland.” Open to interpretation, this is a visual story that holds an interesting focus on my doll costume. All in all, this narrative album is a magical mystery with a hint of creepy.
I look forward to working with Yannick Khong again.
