Mysterious Little People Spotted Again! (18 photos)

It Came Out of the Sky

Holy crap! We've just spotted more miniature people! According to San Francisco-based Jason Barnhart, they're still busy at work and at play, and involved in unusual activities like cleaning up toxic chocolate spills and investigating unidentified flying golf balls.

“The inspiration for this series came from things as wide ranging as books, childhood memories, re-runs of the X Files and the work of a handful of other photographers,” says Barnhart. “There is a loose set of rules, or formula, that all the images follow to one extent or another but I have given myself a lot of latitude for creativity. I also treat my miniatures more as models working within the scene than as part of the propping.”
