"As soon as we got there I was intrigued by the factory and fascinated by the macabre feel of the location. Limbs, heads and torsos were stacked on shelves, packed into boxes and spilled out of crates. We found groups of mannequins standing in formation like modern day terracotta armies and incomplete, dismembered body parts looming out of the shadows of spray rooms." So says award winning photographer Dylan Collard of his visit to proportion london's display mannequin factory - and shows us the not-so-glamorous but distinctive and fascinating birth of mannequins.
