Photographer Matthew Rolston is known for his celebrity portraits, but for his latest project he decided to tackle something much different — ventriloquist dolls. For the book, Talking Heads, The Vent Haven Portraits, Rolston travelled to the Vent Haven Museum in Kentucky where he snapped 100 headshots of retired dummies. The results are as creepy as you'd imagine, especially when it comes to some of the older dummies, covered in scratches and scars from a long life of entertaining. If you're curious, you can check out a gallery of some of the dummies over at CBS News, before making the splurge on the $75 coffee table book.
