Matthew Rolston is best known as a celebrity photographer, but this series sees him branching out into a more macabre subject matter. Instead of his usual portraits, he travelled to  Vent Haven Museum in Forth Mitchell, Kentucky – home of the infamous ‘Puppet House’.

The series depicts abandoned ventriloquists dummies staring blankly into the camera. Rolston then compiled his photographs into a book, titled Talking Heads: The Vent Haven Portraits. Check out some of the dummies below.
