Neverdoll is a cinematic narrative that uses storytelling as a way to confront emotional states such as melancholy, loneliness and fear. The photographs represent pivotal moments in life’s journey, which is often a mysterious and romantic voyage. With the use of a small doll with large eyes as the subject, the viewer is encouraged to immerse in themselves into these moments and to view the world differently. Neverdoll is ongoing project photographed with a medium format camera and printed in a darkroom using the lith process. This process provides me the opportunity to create one of kind photographs that are as delicate and gritty as life itself.
