Globe and Mail: Trend Hunter President Shelby Lee Walsh Interviews Toy Fanatic Becca Wallace

— October 27, 2014 — About
Trend Hunter President Shelby Lee Walsh recently had the pleasure of interviewing vintage toy enthusiast and photographer Becca Wallace for the Globe and Mail. In the interview Walsh asks Wallace how she became interested in photographing antique children's trinkets and the history behind Wallace's Etsy shop called 'BeccaWallace Photography.'

Wallace is an Ottawa-based artist that enjoys creating photo montages of vintage cars, figurines and iconic dolls set against bright-colored backgrounds. The whimsical stills colorfully capture the aesthetic appeal of classic toys coupled with modern and simple sets. Many of the toys featured in Wallace's photographs were passed down to her from her father and family members. "Most of the toys I shoot belonged to my dad and his siblings," she says. "I enjoy the connection I have with him and his family while I’m shooting. My grandmother kept everything and now I’m getting to put it to good use."

How an Ottawa photographer brings vintage toys to life

THE GLOBE AND MAIL

Becca Wallace makes a living playing with toys: by pairing vintage Barbie dresses, toy cars and animal figurines with eye-popping backgrounds, she creates cheerful art that’s picture perfect for any space, from a children’s room to a modern living room.

What is your role within the company?

I do almost everything.

Where are you located (and how many employees work there if applicable)?

I’m based in Ottawa. I’m lucky to have a helpful and creatively minded family to bounce ideas off of or to help me set up a shows. The most helpful is my two-year-old design consultant. He’s got the best ideas.
