I’ve been collecting quirky vintage figurines for years, much to my husband’s dismay. And while most of my collection is not out on display, I pull them out every once in a while – whenever I need a little pick me up. But now that I’ve found Raydel Photography, a vintage-style photography shop by self-taught artist Raydel Shanks, I am not sure I need to do that anymore.
I could just hang a few photographs from Raydel’s vintage item series, then I could stare at cool collectibles all day long, without having to pull out a box from under the bed. The angles and compositions in her photographs bring these inanimate objects to life. They almost feel real. Posing for the camera.
