Precious Metal


My new body of work is a photographic study of vintage lead cast toys, much loved but often confined to the attic, rarely recognised for their unwavering and selfless service to childhood dreams.

I'm fascinated by the characters formed by the casting process, the attention to detail, the hand painted expressions and the patina only years of affection can bestow upon these tiny toys. I have treated each portrait as if the characters were living, life size and all with a tale to tell. 

All pictures are available and Limited to an edition of 25.
