Ruth Thorne Thomsen uses the pinhole camera to create these soft looking photographs. She overlays many images to create her pieces. They are mostly shot in the environment with people or objects included over. Thomsen uses miniature props that she makes to use for her photographs. In some of her works she gets ideas from 20th century surrealism. Her images are very captivating, making you think about a different world where these images could actually exist in real life.
