Cool toy photos

You might recognize Richard Edson from character roles in such films as "Stranger Than Paradise," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Platoon," or "Good Morning, Vietnam" (1987). OR, you might recognize him as the original drummer of punk legends 'Sonic Youth.' Either way, you'd probably not recognize him as an aspiring toy photographer (is there really such thing as an aspiring toy photographer?).

He just opened a show (on March 13) at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art that features his photographs of toys. The show is titled "Beyond the Valley of the Micro-Bops" and the photos look like PAPO or Schleich figures photographed at a close distance. They're pretty cool photos. Check out his IMDB page here. Check out info about the show here.
