This weeks Depth of Field features the darkly humorous work of Toronto photographer Robyn Cumming.

"I am intrigued by the idea of the constructed in photography." says Robyn "The artistic direction is the aspect of the images that drives me. I choose a theme to explore and from there I make sketches, accumulate props, build sets and gather costumes. My desire is to document a concocted reality, a pseudo-reality that questions aspects of the world in which we live. The realities I've made only exist within my photographs; they can never be returned to for inspection or be re-made exactly as they were."

During a string of Fridays we featured a single work from a photographer, with a link to his or her online portfolio and a few words.
