Incredibly Realistic & Shocking Cardboard Scenes

Box is a project by Belgium photographers Maxime Delvaux and Kevin Laloux, in which they utilized cardboard and miniature dollhouse furniture to create these dramatic scenes. The elaborate portraits portray the imperfections of life through very surreal and cinematic moments. Each character seems incredibly downtrodden and unresponsive to the life around them. For example, a car crashes through a kitchen wall while a woman, unfazed, continues to smoke her cigarette, and separately, a man stands in his underwear, casually watching things burn in the middle of a living room.

The images are quite out of the ordinary and viewers might begin to feel a little uncomfortable about peering in to such intimate and disturbing moments. According to the artists, “The idea is to create imaginary scenes with a cinematic aesthetic which, beyond their narrative aspect, unsettle the spectator through the scale and choice of material.” After seeing this work, viewers will walk away feeling a little depressed, but hopefully they will also be inspired to remember and appreciate the good in their own lives.
