Dioramas

I began making dioramas in 2010. I love cutting paper, shadow boxes and exploring depth of field in image making. My dioramas are little theatrical scenes. Sometimes a single diorama will tell the whole story, and sometimes a single scene is part of a longer narrative.

There’s something very satisfying about taking an idea from inside my head, and giving it physical form inside another object.

The thumbnail images below represent a handful of my favorites, and clicking them will lead a blog post for each one.

Always, a diorama in a soap tin
A reunion diorama in a pocket watch
The ghost of Triton
Joie de Mort
Charon the ferryman

Paper fish in a real tin

This is a very small sampling of the hundreds of dioramas I’ve made. Most of them are documented throughout my blog.
