‘B is for brochette’

committed to chronicling the more sinister side of barbie’s picturesque life,
self-taught photographer mariel clayton’s body of work is a collection of images
depicting the doll as an aggressor of a number of gory scenarios.
complemented with tongue-in-cheek titles, the outlandishly gruesome images often
include ken, barbie’s on-and-off-again boyfriend, in the unfortunate position of victim:
decapitated with a box of chocolate in hand, hung upside down and drained of his blood,
scrubbing the floor with a sponge while naked on a leash, and many other unlucky roles.
