Destiny Deacon’s dolls are “the same but different”. Whether as self-portraiture or cathartic psychodrama, Destiny has always used dolls of all kinds in her “blak” humor photographic narrative compositions. Dolls are normally seen as life’s positive travelling companions, but they also carry a shadowy insidious Chucky-type character not so initially visible.
