If anything can be gaged from this playful photography series, it is that Liza Nelson is a fan of emoticons. Her project EMOJIS IRL.LOL shows what various emojis would look like in real life. She also uses colorful backdrops to make the subject matter pop. This includes the red dancing lady, a moustached man, a fist and an eggplant, to name a few.

While not everyone is as into emojis as Liza Nelson might be, it is clear that they have become a big part of popular culture, appearing not just in our text messages, but across social media platforms. They also present a fun way to explore storytelling as a new narrative medium.

This artistic and light hearted endeavor is one that is ongoing, and can be viewed on Liza Nelson's tumblr.
