Fashionable, Lifelike Photos of ‘Plastic Girls’

Roberto Bigano has been photographing the stylish lives of mannequins since 1978. His Plastic Girls may be trapped behind glass, but their lifelike personalities and unique beauty knows no bounds. “I find they tell a lot about the culture of a country and the evolution of fashion and style,” Bigano shares on his website. The artist is also fascinated with the intricate details designers and stylists include with their window displays. “I think every photographer has a lot to learn from them.” Bigano’s portraits were all captured on the fly and through storefront windows, which creates an interesting voyeuristic perspective and narrative with the silent feminine figures. Get to know Bigano’s Plastic Girls in our gallery past the break.
