Indre Serpytyte

Indre Serpytyte Work from Former NKVD – MVD – MGB – KGB Buildings. “In 1944 a Cold War began, a war that was brutal, inhumane. A war that has now been almost forgotten. The Western powers continued to consider the occupation of the Baltic and Eastern Countries by the Stalinist powers to be illegal despite the […]

Drew Leshko

Drew Leshko Work from Simple Solutions. “Simply Solutions is a documentary project spawning from the problem solving skills of Peco energy. Each photograph was recreated in miniature in my studio. I was first drawn to the telephone lines because of the quick fixes, or in some cases no fixes at all. These potentially hazardous situations […]

Frank Kunert

Frank Kunert Work from Photographs of Small Worlds. Ironically, the first time I cam across Kunert’s work it was in a spam email titled “Award Winning Construction Projects” that featured the bottom image. Kunert is another example of why I am so grateful that I abandoned my model making project in its infancy. “The project […]

Ernie Button

Ernie Button Work from Back & Forth and Playing in the Shadows of Space. I have been reading quite a bit about space exploration this week, and it is nice to see some work that is a nice glimpse of the future, as seen from the past.  ____________________________ On the surface, the thought of photographing […]

Slinkachu

Slinkachu Work from Little People. I stumbled across Slinkachu’s book the other day at the bookstore and decided to look up the project and share it. I couldn’t find much in the way of a thorough statement, but the work sort of speaks for itself. “Slinkachu has taken street art to a new scale, painstakingly […]

Bradley Dean Wollman

Bradley Dean Wollman Work from the series The Little War “The Little War began in my mind about a year ago. I thought I would begin to comprehend the war in Iraq if I immersed myself in images and stories from the war. However, the more I watched, looked and listened, the further I felt […]

Erin Tyner

Erin Tyner Work from the series Half Awake. I cam across Tyner’s work on the Hey Hot Shot contenders blog, and once again (as with Lori Nix) I am very very glad I quit working with scale-models before I saw this work, because it is far more sucessful than I ever was with models (hence […]

Esteban Pastorino Diaz

Esteban Pastorino Diaz Diaz’s work with a kite and shift plane focus was some of the first work that I saw turning reality into a scale model diorama of life. What still blows my mind a little bit is that these are real, not scale models.

Lori Nix

Lori Nix Work from Accidentally Kansas and The City. I was making scale model disasters last year before I saw this work. I am very glad I quit before I saw her models, because they put mine to shame. “The line between truth and illusion in photography is one that has been frequently crossed by […]

Christine Shank

Christine Shank Images from Interiors. Statement below. “I love stories – from others, from fiction, from the news, from poetry, from memories – I imagine the desperate situations of personal relationship as scenes of tragic disasters. I enjoy the way in which words placed next to one another elicit an image. The way an image […]
