Playfully Juxtaposing Tiny People in a Big World

What would the world be like if we were all to, inexplicably, shrink in size? London-based French photographer Franck Allais gives us a surreal look at life as miniature people are juxtaposed with radically larger subjects. Allais’s clever set of photos whimsically manipulates ratios in such a way that it seems playfully plausible. A little girl looking to play with her toy Pegasus is faced with a laughably ambitious task and a man going hunting with his dog looks like a figurine traveling with a tank.

The self-taught photographer’s mission is to put things in a new perspective or, at the very least, make people smile. As Allais says, “I like to question people’s perceptions of objects whose role and function are so often taken for granted. Photography allows me to play with the ordinary and present these things in a more unusual environment.”
