Dioramas of food and tiny people, courtesy playful food photographers Akiko Ida and Pierre Javelle. Those tiny people are so industrious! More and more of the same.

Adorable. The tiny people, the incongruity of their placement on food which turns it into something it is not and the playfulness of the scenes...I like the raisin/grape scenario the best.

Hah. Reminds me of the I Spy books I used to love as a kid.

Expected to be cynical. Now a convert. I thought it would be yet another desperate artist gimmick. But saw it and I am sold. This is what art is for - seeing things that matter in new ways. Love it!

Those were far, far better than I dared hope. Really good sense of humor and a keen eye for composition.

I've seen the grape photo passed around for awhile now. I am delighted to see that there are more by the same artists!

Those are delightful! Who carved the little people, and how?

Great post. Best of the web. Cute and clever. The reveals that happen as they pull back are delightful surprises.

These are really delightful! The tiny people look like scale model train figures to me. My dad and sister used to be super into trains, but they let me paint the tiny people's outfits.
