Ruth did a great job photographing Grammy. It's hard to get the detail on a monochrome doll. Gram's personality shines through on this one. Gram is dressed in old lace, her face is done with a trapunto technique and her hair is Tibetan lamb's wool. She has an aluminum armature and can be reposed, even her hands and fingers.
We took the photographs on a photo stage that I recently built in my studio. It's the first use of the stage since the electrician was here to wire it for me. We played a lot with the lighting and in the end we used Ott lights bounced off the stage walls to get this effect. The drape is a large piece of felt.
