Extraordinary tiny scenes taken in ordinary urban environments. This is the world of Slinkachu.

From model villages to The Borrowers, if you love anything miniature then you can't fail to be impressed with these amazing photographs. Extraordinary tiny scenes taken in ordinary urban environments. Some will make you think, and some will make you laugh. With impressive camera work and use of perspective, the world of these little people comes alive.  It's especially interesting to look at the photographs of the wider area side by side with the little people photographs, it helps you to see how an ordinary every day place that you may have passed every day, has been seen through the eyes of the artist and turned into a whole new world for the little people.

The project started back in 2006. The aim is to put across the impression that life in a big city can be overwhelming; one can easily feel lost, however this message is conveyed with a quirky sense of humour that won't fail to amuse. The little people are created with clever remodelling and repainting of model train characters. We love the fact that the artist leaves these miniature works of art on the street for passers by to discover. Imagine their surprise!
