Our Featured Photographer for June 2024 is Sofiya Loriashvili


Last month we published Part 1 of the photoshoot Paris-based photographer Sofiya Loriashvili did at Nescio’s. She took many photographs, so here’s Part 2.

Sofiya shot several scenes at different places in my house. She had prepared a mood board of poses to try. One of the ideas was human doll interaction, with Sofiya herself as the human model. So find the real girl among the dolls wink

It was a cloudy day, but during the afternoon the sun appeared, resulting in beautiful light through the front door in the hallway, shining at Rebecca. And then there is the final scene with all dolls together. Check it out in the gallery enlightened


Sofiya showcased some of these photos at an exhibition at Césure, Paris. Right now she's preparing for another exhibition in Arles. For information about this exhibition, or if you and your dolls like to participate in her project, contact Sofiya at loriashvilisofiya@gmail.com

Note from the Editor: Each month we will feature a different photographer's work. We invite doll owners and manufacturers alike to participate in this new monthly feature. Photo shoots must meet a minimum quality level. If you do not meet that level we are happy to work with you, critique your photos and help you to raise the bar on your photography. Good photo shoots can be had with low cost digital cameras. It is all in the technique.
