The Weirdest Thing You’ll See Today: Photos of Barbie and Ken in Real Life


The fact that Hayden Wood spent six years working as a creative retoucher and graphic artist for Ogilvy in New Zealand is evident in his series Living Dolls, which takes a real life man and woman and manipulates them both into waxy-looking plastic people.

Click through to check out a selection of photos from the project, and be sure to let us know in the comments if this Vancouver-based photographer’s work makes you do a double take too.
