When Food Becomes A Landscape for Tiny People

Added on May 31, 2011 / Category : Photography / Comments

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a land of giants? Size disparity has been an interest in artist Christopher Boffoli's life since he was a small boy enjoying Gulliver's Travels and playing with his model train set. Now, as an adult, Christopher has taken his interest and turned it into some fascinating photographic art.

When asked about the concept, Christopher had this to say: "Coming up with an interesting image is only half the battle - a caption that will make people smile is also a big part of my work. I have always been interested in size disparity and a juxtaposition of scales between people and things ever since I owned a tiny model train world as a kid. There is in some part a god-like feeling to having command of an entire world, which you can rearrange at any capricious whim. It takes a lot of patience to make these tiny scenes as the figures are prone to falling over after they are set up. It can take up to 25 attempts to get the perfect shot."
