Bound for Adventure!

Like pictorial petits fours, Audrey Heller's bite-sized photos tempt the viewer with their deliciously witty and imaginative juxtapositions. Common objects are transformed into uncharted worlds behind Audrey's lens.

Here, tiny travelers trek across the spines of The Book of Knowledge. The image invites us to ask, what curiosity keeps us moving from volume to volume? What do we put in our bags to carry with us? Made in San Francisco, California. Framed in Portland, Oregon.

Take a studio tour and see where Audrey Heller brings her miniature models to life.

Audrey Heller lives and works in her native San Francisco Bay Area. Since 1996, her photographs have been shown, shared, published and collected around the world.

"My photographs draw from my work as a director and lighting designer for theater. I use surreal scenes to bring attention to the beauty and power of everyday objects and daily interactions. I hope to encourage people to see their world a little differently, and a little more joyfully. Enjoy!"
