More than a year after being published by Pointed Leaf Press, Matthew Rolston‘s coffee table book Talking Heads: The Vent Haven Portraits continues to beguile the press. Most recently, Wired interviewed Matthew about the project, which features his large-scale color portraits of vintage ventriloquist dummies that reside at the Vent Haven Museum in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky.
“I walked in the door and was instantly hooked,” Matthew tells wired.com’s Design/Art column of visiting the museum. “It was some of the best hair, make-up and wardrobe I’d ever seen.”
Collectors have also found the portraits quite alluring. On a recent walk through the West Village here in New York, we recently spotted one of Matthew’s Talking Heads photographs hanging in the living room of a posh brownstone.
