Dream or Reality?

I had a plausible dream and I wonder if it is real?

While I was napping, I dreamed that I googled the name of a woman artist who made photographs in series, She would photograph a person in a place, then make plaster or clay version of the person and then photograph it in the same place that the person was posed. Then she would make a bronze statue and photograph it in the same place. She had a whole series of such trios of photos.
The only one I can remember is one of a little girl sitting with her legs straight out in front of her on the floor in a train station. Of course, I can't remember the artist's name, although I vaguely think her first name might have been Mary and there was a large book of the photos available. I did a little googling in my awake state and found a flood of bronze statues of the Virgin Mary!
So I am asking y'all, is this just a dream or do any of you know if such an artist and photo series exist?
