Whether photographing adult swim stars or vinyl Gorillaz, Brian McCarty transforms real backgrounds into imaginary scenarios and make-believe characters into lifelike subjects.

By capturing art toys in realistic settings, McCarty creates multimedia tableaux based on constructed narratives. The effect is disarmingly spontaneous, with colorful creatures becoming engaged storytellers in a practice that redefines the meaning of play.

This is a pretty cool art book (great for coffee tables), where the photographer takes toys and small models and places them in cool but weird everyday urban scenes.
