John Purlia

I wanted to post about John Purlia a while back, but I wasn’t able to save images from the website (appropriately titled Wind Up Dreams and Vinyl Nightmares).

These photo collages of vintage toys, kitsch and ephemera are rather close to my heart because Mr. Purlia and I have a surprising amount of artifacts and images in common (particularly the Kewpie dolls and robots).

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on one of those devils!

I’m not going to spoil it by typing them out here, but all of these little vignettes have titles that further add to to narrative. They are really fun to look at.

See more in the galleries.
