The Brooklyn Paper

The Dollhaus gallery in Williamsburg is currently exhibiting the work of photographer Bambi the Mermaid. The show, on display through Dec. 19, has a name that’s as arresting as that of the artist herself - "Freakshow Pin-Ups."

Bambi, who is also a performer, has created a collection of images, including "Dog Faced Girl" (above), portraying fantastical creatures, grotesque characters, autobiographical scenes and fetish dreams. She places both her self-image and her actual self on the line by appearing in each "Pin-Up."

The Dollhaus Art Gallery, located at 37 Broadway at Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg, is open Friday through Sunday, from noon to 6 pm. For more information, call (917) 667-2332 or visit the Web site at
