Inspired by light, passion and mystery. All images are copy-writed to myself, unless stated otherwise. No images may be used without consent.

The question I will be choosing to answer in my essay is, ‘Is there a reason or reasons why photographers choose to photograph toys, especially model figures, in their images?’

I will be researching into why photographers photograph toys, if there is a meaning behind it. I am also doing this reasearch to try and find out why I enjoy photographing toys, I think I have a rough idea why, because I can manipulate the images to how I want them to look, but I would like to understand this in more depth. I will be looking at a variety of photographers, starting with David Levinthal who inspired my college photography working with model dinosaurs to recreate Jurrassic Park, and even looking at flickr photographers who use Lego figures to create a scene. My research will take me through many unknown photographers, but I am hoping to discover new photographs and reasons as to why people photograph toys.
