girls and their dolls

I just stumbled across a really neat article in the New York Times (website) about Girls and their Dolls. It is an article on Ilona Szwarc, a photo journalist who is working on a project that looks into the cultural and personal connections that girls have with their dolls – in this case, American Girl dolls.

The photos are stunning and the story is very interesting. Click here to read “Girls and their Dolls – A Mirror on Growing Up in America.

And in related news – American Girl President, Ellen Brothers is retiring in September 2012 after 17 years with the company.

Photo above is a screen capture of part of one of the photos in the story.
