Japanese Master Doll Maker, Ryoichi Yoshida, invites you to
view the amazing dolls that he creates and photographs.

All photographs are copyright by Ryoichi Yoshida.
He is a professional photographer and doll creator.

Somewhat elusive, artist Ryoichi Yoshida has a Tokyo studio called "Pygmalion." He has published several beautiful photographic books of his dolls and sells his "arrangements"-- carefully positioned scenes with his dolls serving as surreal actresses in mysterious, frozen-in-time dramas.

Their expressions are haunting and sometimes erotic, and it is often difficult to remember that they are merely inert material, exquisitely fabricated from years of talent by Japan's finest maker of doll art, and photographed with an equally sensitive eye.
