Patti Garcia: Misunderstood Beauties

Growing up Patti Garcia had only one doll, she called him Tony. He was her best friend in a world of little materials or possessions. She left Tony behind when her parents moved to the USA and even though she was gifted with many new toys, her doll was still her best toy. She since has left dolls and other playthings behind and has found a new meaning for these creatures. Dolls capture a time of innocence, a time of simple games. But they also have a mystery about them, “they have been misunderstood in a world of suspicion”, says Garcia, they have a sense of the past, an almost eerie and scary feel of souls living in them. This is what captivated her when she first started to photograph them. She has now been shooting images of dolls for more than ten years. They all live in a box, no one has seen them, only Patti finds them as treasures to her collection. “I would like to share these images with the rest of doll enthusiasts and artists who can see what I see” shares Garcia.
