little people

meghan at farmboy fine arts sent over a fantatsic link to a blog called little people that reminds me of a post i did on photographers minimiam back in 2005. little people is a british street art project described as, "little handpainted people, left in london to fend for themselves", but more plainly, it's a series of photographs of tiny painted figures posed in various situations throughout london. i couldn't get enough of these so i thought i'd share- you can click here for the little people home page. [thanks, meghan!]

Very similar to Audrey Heller's photographs:

you may want to check out a photographer named david levinthal. he was one of the first fine art photographers to incorporate miniatures & sets into his photographs.

also, consider a photographer named james casebere. his images don't involve faux human subjects but he recreates miniatures of actual buildings and then photographs them in various lighting situations, under (faux) water, etc. pretty amazing.

I really like these! Cool idea! Sort of reminds me of that feature on Sesame Street where Ernie had a miniature "bug world" in the flower box outside his window. It always fascinated me - the concept of parallel universes in miniature.

I have to say the third photo is not London but Manchester - I recognised the Koffee Pot coffee shop in the background!! Love the pics - really cheered me up on another rainy day in Manchester...
