DINKY TOY SERIES
Whilst clearing out my uncle’s house I discovered a box containing several vintage Dinky toy cars. This was the inspiration that sparked my Dinky Toy series.
These lovely objects that had been locked away for decades could now have a new lease of life as contemporary bright and funky pictures.
Dinky Toys were among the most popular diecast vehicles ever made – predating other popular diecast marques, including Corgi, Matchbox, and Mattel’s Hot Wheels.
The photographs show the face of the car, capturing its character and together create a strong graphical set. The marks and scratches from the play-wear evoke nostalgic memories of childhood.
The coloured background gives the objects an environment in which to exist, sets the mood and compliments the car’s personality.
