Spacemen

I’m tempted to leave these images without any explanation. I had sent out a request to friends and family for things that might be interesting to play with in the studio. Someone sent me a few little plastic spacemen, who languished in a baggie for a year or so. When I finally got to them, I thought they needed their portraits done. I am always impressed, when I get in close to these little cheapo plastic toys, how much detail and expression they carry. Someone went to some pains to give them individual faces. They ended up looking a lot creepier in the images than they do in real life. Like stills from some sort of dark sci-fi horror movie about a haunted space station or something.
