About the Artist



Laurie Simmons is a photographer and filmmaker who works uses dummies, dollhouses, and other toys to create psychologically intense images and explore the boundaries of real, unreal and surreal. Her most recent publication, The Love Doll, documents the artist's relationship with a life-sized "Love Doll" in daily photographs. Simmons served as the Roy Lichtenstein Resident in Visual Arts at The American Academy in Rome in 2005, and received a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in 1997.  An alumna of Philadelphia's Tyler School of Art, she currently lives and works in New York City.
