Annie Collinge : Five Inches of Limbo

I am beyond excited that Londoner / New York photographer, Annie Collinge, has made a book featuring some incredibly peculiar portraits. Designed by Claire Huss, Five Inches of Limbo is home to a hand sewn collection of Collinge’s comical characters, which were inspired by the heads of thrifted junk dolls. Strangers were sought after, costumes were made, and art was created alongside five poems by Margaret Atwood.

While Annie is no stranger to characters in costume, Five Inches of Limbo is sure to continue the tastiest of treats!  So to hold myself and any other readers out there who had the same idea of snagging a copy, here are some of my personal favorites of Annie’s subjects in costume below:
