Lars and the Real Girl Vs. Laurie Simmons: Titillation, Sexuality and Provocation in the Utilization of Dolls and Mannequins

Image Maker Presentation by Phillip Krecjcarek

Friday, October 17 - 10:15AM to 11:15AM
Conrad A. Elvehjem Building, Room 150

Remember when the only sex dolls were inflatable? The industry certainly has evolved. Now, even established photographers such as Laurie Simmons are purchasing them. My research and personal work has centered upon the use of dolls and mannequins in photography. They have been incorporated in photographers' work since the 1800's. Which photographers have embraced using these facsimiles of the human form, and why? I will conclude with my own work in this area over the past 3 decades. I have purchased a female child and adult mannequin that have been dressed in a First Communion dress and bridal gown respectively.
