Celebrity photographer Matthew Rolston shot portraits of ventriloquist dummies from the Vent Haven Museum in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky for his new book, Talking Heads, The Vent Haven Portraits. More photos from the book can be found at CBS News.

Using techniques he has honed over decades of celebrity portraiture, and marking his first foray into the world of fine arts, Rolston has captured the inherent humanity of a rarely-seen collection of unique entertainment figures: ventriloquist dummies.
