I've always enjoyed things that are out of scale. Like when mugs or glasses are huge and it makes me feel like a know like Ian Holm in that TV series I used to watch. But there are not normally many opportunities to enjoy the reverse of this...until now.



is a series of photographs by Cynthia Greig from Detroit. The images are of her friends and family holding and struggling to utilise everyday objects in miniature. She says that as "smaller scale surrogates of the original, the miniature seems to imply the existence of some kind of alternative universe where we are like gods, omnipotent and in control." Interesting concept and the photos...well, they are gorgeous.

Magnifying Glass

By the way, I found Cynthia's work through a new favourite blog Please Sir. You should go there next.
