Hans Bellmer

Totally creepy, intriguing, and in a way really beautiful in form and composition. The black and white is really effective - and the dolls themselves of course are sculpturally magnificent - Though subject matter is quite confronting, there's a lovely level of abstracted form in these images, and I understand why Bellmer chose to photograph his dolls rather than just present them as sculpture - the flattening and earie stillness is really what drives these shots for me.
