The model in the Lena & Dolls photo series seems almost as lifeless as the doll she hugs and carries. Of course, the dark and rather depressing scenes encourage these thoughts of lost innocence, sadness and even death. The quiet quality in the Lena & Dolls series may give it a whimsical, fairy-tale feel, but it is as if these shots are being taken at the part of the story in which the hero must be tested to make it to the end having learned a valuable lesson.

Shot by Poland-based photographer Tomek Jankowski, the Lena & Dolls photo series is all about lighting and composition. Expertly photographed, Jankowski was able to breathe some life into the dolls while taking some away from his models.
