London-based photographer, Cristiana Montis created this series of photographs based off of the manikins used in the Canterbury Christ Church University skills labs. Cristiana’s compositions create a sense of sadness and isolation around the manikins in each photograph.
She says of her experience,
The adult and young person manikins are life-size and are unsettlingly similar to the real thing in both appearance and touch.
All in all the skills labs provide an insightful and odd environment where real and pretend merge into a life-size ‘doll-house’ where the cycle of life and death is played out day after day by life-less objects.
