The Masters of Miniature

Aperture:f/2.4
Focal Length:4.28mm
ISO:100
Shutter:1/20 sec
Camera:iPhone 4S

The goal is to create the ultimate illusion and trick your viewers into questioning whether it’s a miniature model or the real thing.

I thought it would be worth the effort to showcase some of the masters. Masters of miniature.

My criteria is wide open… anything that catch’s my eye or imagination… as long as it’s miniature. I obviously have an interest in miniatures that goes beyond dollhouses and leans towards the fringes…  Artists who incorporate different types of creativity such as Bonsai, dioramas, photography and movement or automation. I also appreciate eccentricity and some of the “model villages” below are included, not for their awe inspiring shock, (think Lego Land), but their quirky history and origins that sometimes began with some odd nut ball that started piddling in the yard wearing a pitch helmet and became obsessed.

As you scroll down, if a particular one catch’s your attention, click on the link to view additional information and a picture gallery.

So… without further ado.
