Man Documents Relationship With Life-Sized Doll Through Stunning Photography

New York photographer June Korea lives in a 'constructed fantasy' with a plastic doll named Eva.

Back in 2001 was when June first recognized his infatuation with dolls. "Why do I really photograph dolls? It was loneliness... I became interested in photographing dolls (because) I know human-like but inanimate objects are not going anywhere."

On December 29th, 2014, was when June first met Eva. She arrived in a giant box and has been the center of his life ever since.

    “In the artificial eternity I constructed, I hope for myself and viewers who are struggling with different types of emotions everyday, that we can find more meaning by sharing stories of the solitude in our lives.”
