Miniature Moments in My Daily Life
Laurie McCormick’s collection of photography titled “Miniature Moments in My Daily Life” is featured in the Fall 2013 issue of Still Point Arts Quarterly. She creates everyday scenes with miniature people. She writes, “A few years ago, I heard someone say, ‘Photograph what you love and where you are.’ Something clicked, and I found myself creating and photographing scenes using my collection of miniatures. My collection had been stuffed away for years in a closet, and freeing them brought me tremendous joy. The work presented here . . . comes from scenes reflective of my daily routine.
She has another collection titled “Family Secrets” which focuses on some “painful memories” from her childhood. “I find this work with miniatures to be very therapeutic because of my feelings uncovered in creating these scenes,” she writes. “This work has enabled me to put the past behind me and enjoy the creativity of the moment.”
