Photographer Michael John Hunter utilizes large scale, hyper realistic sculptures and traditional camera optics to explore how imagery can manipulate how we view our world. His latest work, "As i grow, As i lose", is an ongoing series of images depicting a 20 foot doll sculpture installed in locations in and around London. Using height as a tool, Hunter creates a trompe l’oeil in the finished images that leaves viewers questioning their initial assumptions of the work.
