VW at Cemetery
Mike O'Kane

Mike O'Kane fabricates plausible realities using photographic methods and tools. His work over the last decade or so has evolved into revisiting childhood through the medium of toys, using a photographic methodology and the creation of fictional reality.

In this series he gathered up experienced Matchbox toys, and had each make a cameo appearance in a contemporary scene portraying itself.
On this occasion the cemetery scene had a dryness which appealed. The model in ecclesiastical colours selected itself.

Mike O'Kane lives in Dunedin, New Zealand
