this is a photography project I did in university a couple of years ago.
the theme was "miniatures".
I called my miniseries "farewell", because that was something I felt I could express well
with the placement of the miniature people (despite their lack of variety in facial expressions)
I really love little model people, especially the woman with the pleated skirt.
and I think the guy in my pictures has a mustache!
I took pictures of my rooms,
stretched all the perspective shots into rectangles (in photoshop)
and built a little model in scale 1:50.
I really like how by doing this 2d and 3d get mixed up.
I was thinking of this today, not so much for the resulting pictures (above)
but for the pictures of the actual model (below),
which will always make me remember these two rooms (in a flat shared with three very nice people)
that I loved so much.
they were north-facing, had great light and were heated with coal ovens
(which wasn't that convenient, but very cheap),
and having two rooms made me feel like I had my own little apartment.
I regret not having done this for the other rooms and apartments that I've lived in.
such nice memories.
