“I’m too shy to ask people to model for me, so dolls are an easier option,” queer artist Andrew Woodyatt tells Queerty. “I like subverting manufactured squeaky clean dolls, and explore what their real lives might be like at home away from their plastic public personas. I create their environment in miniature, the grubbiness and sadness, the secret desires.”

Woodyatt is based in East London. He’s been taking pictures ever since his father bought him his first SLR camera when he was 11 years old.

“I definitely have favorite dolls to work with,” Woodyatt continues. “The best one came from a fetish sex shop in Soho and already had pierced nipples.”

Woodyatt says his fascination with dolls is lifelong.

“I started very early on the use dolls in my work,” he says. “My sister had lots of dolls and this epic dolls house. Growing up on trashy TV and lurid comics, I enacted overblown stories with the dolls, usually ending in some terrible disaster or alien invasion, where they all died or had terrible injuries.”
