New York based artist Laurie Simmons, known for her photographic work of miniature and live-size dolls, paper cut-outs, puppets and dummies, portraying them as ‘living objects’ in a highly conceptual manner. Simmons’ symoblic photographs conveyed a bittersweet nostalgia for the 1950s, at the same time exposing the social issues such as consumerism and feminism in the postwar American culture.
