Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?

Fausta Facciponte is a Canadian artist who uses a variety of photographic techniques – from traditional film to modern digital processes.

In 1990, Fausta received her Honors Bachelor in Art and Art History from the University of Toronto. She is best known for dealing with the human condition as an issue of material thing. The process of decaying and preserving is what triggers this artist to examine some more the very nature of things that are forgotten and passed along from one owner to the next.

Her project titled Doll-O-Rama is an example of her curiosity about the material things issues. Fausta re-created afterlives of abandoned dolls through her (maybe a little bit haunting) photo series. Doll-orama is actually just one part of her Lost and Found collection of captured spirit of forgotten items. Those mostly worn-out and old dolls confront the viewers with an imagery of their childhood, usually lost in time.
