While some people are afraid of dolls, others totally love them. Iretaro is a Japanese model and photographer who is a huge fan and collector of ball-jointed dolls, but she doesn't let them get bored on the shelves.

The artist gained popularity by sharing beautiful images of herself and her "mini-me" on Twitter and Instagram. The doll that photographer uses to model with looks a lot like Iretaro herself with long black hair and slender physique. The artist matches hers and doll's clothing, creating a slightly surreal image of two very different yet somewhat similar girls.

Below you can find some images of the photographer and her doll.

This is spectacular art. I love how she manages to integrate herself into the artwork which makes it so much more unique and fascinating.

There are stories about this picture that are waiting to be told. Intriguing idea. What if we all had a little "self" that manifested itself like Jiminy Cricket?

Again, where does she get the shoes and socks and glasses, etc? Does she make all these clothes and accessories herself? If so, kudos to her!!

This looks as though they are having a deep contemplative thought on the universe and cherry blossoms.
