Bill Finger

Seattle-based photographer Bill Finger - who worked earlier in his career as an assistant cameraman - uses his knowledge of cinematography and set design to create amazingly realistic crime scene dioramas. Each diorama is constructed specifically to be photographed. Like filmmaking all staging and lighting is done looking through the lens. Once photographed the diorama is then destroyed. Bill explains, "Through this process I create a temporary space, which like a film set, only lives on within the image.”
