Doppelganger is a Texan now based in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and he says he tries ‘to bring out the beauty in things that most people ignore’. So he often shoots abandoned, devastated, disordered buildings, often with a single red ‘stripper shoe’ as a sign of civilization.
Some of his best work has a melancholy, post-apocalyptic feel to it.
Now meet a lady who’s not at all melancholy, though she’s about to get a bit of a surprise.
She had a key role in a photo Doppelganger took on November 21, 2011, in a shoot he says he enjoyed doing.
And one reason he enjoyed it: he got to play Santa!
