D Day Dummy

 "D-Day Dummy" by Dominic Fontana.
Taken with a 1959 Minox B Subminature 8x11mm camera on to Agfa APX 100 B&W Neg in ID11 1+1.

This ventriloquist’s dummy is on display in the D-Day Museum, Portsmouth. I was intrigued by the idea of entertainment and comedy and its part in a major historical event such as the D-Day invasion of the European mainland. The dummy's eyes seem to convey an understanding and at the same time a child's innocence.
