As The World Flickrs: Snailbooty!!


There is no other doll photographer out there which can send my nerve endings into a delighted tizzy like a person who goes by the moniker 'snailbooty' on Flickr. Scenes from elaborate to simple are the settings for Snailbooty's fantabulous collection of bizarre doll-creatures. It's quite clear to me that much time is taken to set up scenes and lighting, and hours upon hours of shooting takes place. My favorites are the black and white 'film noir-esque' ones, which are at once jolting and comical (in fact, you'll find a lot of humor as you browse through the pages of Snailbooty's Flickr stream!) And the talent doesn't just end with the camera, no, Snailbooty is an artist as well. I invite you all to check out this wonderful body of work.


[**OFF-TOPIC NOTE ..... I am still without access to most of my files from the old pc. Two of my seven external hard drives died on the same day, and my images now only remain on the pc's internal drives (I had 3). It is seeming like an eternity for which I wait while external enclosures for those 3 drives arrive in the mail. Until then, I am unable to do much of my work, and going absolutely bonkers in the process!!]

Sandy!! I am so sorry to be 'absent' of late; will get better once I am back on my feet.... still wobbly right now without all my data which is on the old computer, and which I pray is intact. But it does give me more time to enjoy other people's work, thus, snailbooty!

What the??! Well, let's see, I think that might have to be a "no, thanks". I'm a bit of a private girl. :)

Wow - those are some interesting creations - old dolls just give me the creeps.
The photos are great - but the subject just makes my skin crawl. hehe

sMacThoughts said...

Hahaha! Jeremy, I don't know why I secretly find it hilarious when a big macho man finds dolls creepy/scary/ or skin-crawl-causing!

Jeremy said...

Yea, my daughter finds it real funny too. hehe.
