And now, a post embracing my obsession with miniature things – there are a few people out there shooting tiny plastic people posed in street scenes, or on food (see Christoper Boffoli), but my favorite is definitely London-based artist Slinkachu, who’s been shooting The Little People Project since 2006. It’s a mix of street art, performance art, and photography and he’s presenting the full package – the tiny figures are posed on real streets with real objects, and the photo sequences zoom way out so you get to see the installations in various scales and contexts, each one very different than the previous. They’re funny, smart, and subtle, especially considering their size. Anyway, here are a few images:
