Reborning subculture


In the Reborning subculture, collectors “adopt” hyper-realistic artificial babies–impeccably crafted from vinyl, glass, doe suede, and up to eighty layers of paint. The “parents” care for their dolls as if they were living infants, building nurseries and throwing birthday parties and baby showers. The dolls are straight out of the uncanny valley, with verisimilitude right down to tiny pink fingernails, fine blue veins, and glistening drool. These dolls are not cheap, the Reborners sell their work to collectors for up to thousands of dollars.
For her series “Mother Love,” New York-based photographer Jamie Diamond immersed herself in the Reborning subculture, which began in the U.S. in the late 1990s. Diamond first encountered the movement in 2010 while working on a self-portrait project, “I Promise to be a Good Mother.” After stumbling upon some unsettlingly lifelike dolls being auctioned on eBay for not cheap prices, “I purchased my first one and knew that I had found my next project,” Diamond tells Co.Design.
