ZOE LEONARD. MOUTH OPEN, TEETH SHOWING

Mouth Open, Teeth Showing documents Zoe Leonard’s collection of dolls she gathered from yard sales, flea markets, and e-bay sellers around the world. Photographed as specimens against a neutral background, these dolls from different times and places seem to embody certain societal ideals as expressed in clothing styles, hair cuts, skin colors, make-up and the variations of expression. Leonard’s essay in English and German uses her doll collection as a point of departure for reflections on cultural notions of childhood and relationships between children and adults.
