Creepy Doll Photo How I Love You

In honor of all things creepy — I absolutely love this photo. It is filed in my imaginary drawer of ‘I wish I had taken this’ pictures. It is one of those moments where, if I were in a flea market and found this photo,  I would have to skip out on paying the electric bill and eat Hamburger Helper for two weeks just so  I could own it. 

But I was surprised to discover that the image is actually a daguerreotype from 2003 by Mike Robinson, a contemporary Canadian daguerreotypist. I’m psyched to see a photographer dedicated to alternative darkroom processes in a digital age.
