Carrie M Becker: Barbie Trashes Her Dreamhouse

I have a love of all things miniature.  As a young adult, I collected small Japanese toys from a company called Rement. During the summer after completing graduate school I had some down time and decided to use my commercial photography skills to shoot my miniature collection as though it were “real”.  Also during that time, I also frequently watched shows like “Hoarders” and “How Clean Is Your House?”  With that in mind, this past summer I began creating the images that are presented here, though I reflect their inspiration as a mirror and not a judgement. For me, this series is about creating a small, but perfect world where the viewer cannot distinguish between what is reality and what is fiction. All images taken with a Nikon D40.   Re-purposed 1/6th scale doll accessories with other handmade items.
