Mini Wonders

Lori Nix’s photos are wonderful. In the best way possible, some of them make me think of Thomas Kinkade™, if TK™ was a) tripping on acid and b) not a hack. The online reproductions don’t, sadly, boast the best quality. But what is it about miniature photography that’s so darn alluring? (Thingtacular.)

The photographs are fantastic.

If you're unfamiliar with the work of Gregory Crewdson I recommend checking out his stuff as well.

Though technically very different, to me he also captures something of the hyper/sur/real that these miniature photographs possess.

I agree -- those images are phenomenal. They are somehow simultaneously sad and, for lack of a better word, twee.

Actually, come to think of it, the opening sequence to Mr. Rogers (with the tiny fake town) conjures up the same pleasantly melancholy feeling for me.
