The art of ventriloquism may be impressive, but it can also be extremely creepy as the 'Talking Heads, The Vent Haven Portraits' series shows. It encompasses 100 headshots of retired dummies, each of which were unearthed at the Vent Haven Museum in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky. Considering that they range in age, some of them are particularly disturbing to look at. It is no wonder that such dolls often make appearances in horror movies and scary television episodes.

The Talking Heads, The Vent Haven Portraits series was shot by photographer Matthew Rolston, who is known for his celebrity portraitures. Currently being sold in the form of a coffee book, the series rigorously employs a formal photographic approach that highlights every nuance and uniqueness present in each face.
