Ordinary Forest Transformed into a Nest of Tree Hotels

Boston-based artist Daniel Barreto has used his skilled hand to craftily transform images of trees into enchanting dwellings for miniature creatures.

The photo manipulations are just subtle enough, with a light flickering on through windows and doors, to pique one’s interest. Even the images that are not animated draw one’s attention with their clever combinations of nature and miniature architecture. They create the illusion of residence for tiny people. Perhaps there are even some elves baking up some cookies and snacks in them.
