Untethered Pearls, Outside Open

The image on the front of this box was first published in Shots Magazine in 2015.   The original photo is a silver gelatin print, processed to create a unique, discolored and dappled effect. 

I thought the image would make an awesome box, and so here it is!   This box was created in 2015, so is relatively new.   But it already has a bit of a history!  It was selected for "Photography Reimagined" at Tilt Gallery in 2015, and won an honorable mention.  Before sending it to the gallery, I needed to sign it and attach the antique doll form to the back wall.  I took out the doll, and never saw it again.  Yep, it disappeared!  I'm sure one of my kittens took it outside and had a blast with it, and maybe one day I will find it (or some telltale pile of sawdust and fabric) under a random bush.  The second doll is also cool, but probably a bit prettier and to be honest, I liked the beat up quality of the first one better.
