On the web, they're everywhere. Reborn Facebook groups garner thousands of members who are all deeply immersed in the economy, care, and culture of realistic dolls. Collectors on YouTube show millions of subscribers their morning baby routine ideas, fastidious Reborn unboxing, and tips for how to pose dolls for the most realistic Instagram shot. The Reborn community also extends IRL through meet-up groups and events like the Rose Doll Show, the ultimate expo for all things Reborn.
Kunz describes ‘Artificial Reality’ as an “emotional futuristic series.” She first discovered Reborns through a friend's mother, a Reborner, who introduced her to other collectors. After spending time with the community, Kunz soon felt it was her obligation to help reduce the stigmatization of Reborners through her work. But she had to be careful not to photograph Reborners in a voyeuristic way. “You could easily take ‘WTF' pictures with a flash, but I was careful," says Kunz. "I picked the shots where I think they look good. That’s really important to me because I don’t want to make a show.” Her portraits, shot with a Hasselblad 500cm medium format camera, explore intimate moments of tenderness and joy, challenging societal perceptions of what motherhood should look like. A little less conventional, a little more dystopian Madonna and Child.
