A photographer and graphic designer, Santlov stages and photographs kitschy scenes in which toy figurines of popular comic book icons and film characters engage in mundane or subversive human activities—playing with their iPhones, surfing Craigslist, or graffiti-ing on walls—poking fun at human behaviors and foibles. In one image, Toy Story’s Woody has dropped his iPhone down a toilet, while in another, Gollum from Lord of the Rings hoards Nike high-tops. The series, titled “ToysRLikeUS,” recently went viral, turning Santlov into an Instagram sensation; he has accrued just under half a million followers on the photo-sharing app.
