Sometimes a doll needs to be removed from the box and taken out in the world.  Although I’ve always photographed Barbie dolls on the shelves of my collection, when I launched "Behold the Valley of the Dolls" in 2016 I began photographing them elsewhere: outside around the neighborhood, on beaches, atop mountains, alongside canyons, in the park, on city streets, at the swimming pool, and just about every place in my Uptown San Diego home. This is a collection of some of my favorite photos from these "outside the box, off the shelf" shoots.
