“Each of my pieces start with the characters. They are the narrators of my stories,” she explains. “Their expression and pose are very important to me.” In her images, 1950s pin-up girls beam coquettishly, and Edwardian children solemnly gaze on, surrounded by strange industrial landscapes and twisting branches.
