Since 1913, Sydney, Australia’s Doll Hospital has been repairing dolls and teddy bears of all kinds. From plastic to porcelain, they have been fixing these treasures that have been handed down through generations in some cases, ensuring an elongated life for the toys that have become irreplaceable. Photographer Jason Reed captured the day to day workings of the Doll Hospital and it’s gifted employees. What is incredible is the transformation from hopeless looking junk to brand new shiny toys that Reed captures and the care that is put into each individual repair.
