Benoit Paillé’s Constructed DollarStore Pop Art

French-Canadian photographer Benoit Paillé created a series of constructed images entitled DollarStore. These dollar store dinosaur toys and other objects have been transformed from the mundane to the extraordinary. Through manipulation, repetition, and documentation with the use of stunning photography techniques over brightly colored backgrounds; these simple dollar store sculptures take on new glamorous aesthetic qualities. With this unique interpretation of the object the artist questions the social implications of cheap labor in China and abroad. Paillé is a self-taught photographer whose images are both experimental and yet resonate a high level of sophistication. See more below!
