As I mentioned before, many of the black and white images on this blog are from a photography exhibit presented in the mid 1970s. I was completely captivated by the way the Sasha dolls were able to pose and offer a range of expressions both in person and in photographs.
The incredible simplicity of their sculpt and face painting plus the perfection of their balance added up to the ideal doll for both children and collectors.
I wanted to capture some of that on film and over the course of several years I photographed my Sashas hundreds of times.
I am always amazed and enchanted by the variety of expressions a Sasha doll has and that fascination continues to the present day.
