Photo Adventures in a Miniature World


These photographs by Kurt Moses transport us into the adventures of a small, small world. Un Petit Monde is an intriguing and amusing collection of tiny people arranged in macro lens settings. Moses teams up with his wife Edwige to create the intricate scenes involving characters in everyday life situations–walking the dog or playing in the snow–as well as not-so-everyday scenes–facing the challenge of transporting a gigantic pumpkin or escaping the attack of a giant squid!

He said, "My goal is simple; initiate a storyline and capture an evocative photo that allows the viewer to draw their own conclusions about the scenes they are observing."
