The Little Zoo - e.soule photography

When I was a child I was obsessed with the idea of becoming as small as my toys and being able to see things from their perspective. "The Incredible Shrinking Woman" and "Fantastic Voyage" were two of my favorite Saturday Matinees, caught during their later runs on television, of course. While Elizabeth Soule may not have used the same toys that I once fantasized about, she has beautifully exhibited the world from their point of view (perhaps He-Man and She-Ra aren't able to take Tyra Banks' direction and smile 'using just the eyes' - and thus make for less than ideal subjects). Soule's "Little Zoo" series manages to capture elusive micro-wildlife in macro still-life. Each image has been mounted, UV protected and coated in a thin layer of wax-like archival sealant, ready to either hang or be stacked on that surface that's been crying out for a little decoration. The only thing better than getting one of these is stacking three. See available photos in our webshop.
