hello and welcome to the new blog for the flickr group portrait of the doll. with this blog i hope to be able to bring the world of doll portraits to a wider audience.

it was through my own love of asian fashion dolls (in particular, blythe) that i came to appreciate the beauty in seeing their features so closely. i believe it brings an intimacy and insight to the viewer that they might not expect. sometimes the dolls seem to have personalities of their own and through the portraits they truly come to life.

it is for these reasons and more that i am creating this blog to share the magic that the members of the flickr group post every day.
