Army Men Around the House
« on: May 26, 2020, 04:59:46 PM »
I've been taking this series of photos for about 7 years or so. It first started when I was unemployed and bored at home and started taking photos of the scale models I build attacking my brother's cat. Over the years this hobby has evolved for me and I've graduated from taking these pictures with my phone to using a Canon Rebel T6 and I've even managed to get some paid work here and there.


You can find my work at http://armymenaroundthehouse.ca

I've also started taking a series of Film Noir themed photos, since that genre peaked shortly after world war two, and there are a pretty good selection of 1:35 scale civilians for me to work with.




I've found lately for the noir stuff in particular that building scenery and using it much the way film sets would be built in the studio at the time to be a very practical approach.

I think my favourite  might be the one with the cassette but the whole series is really outstanding.

That last picture is giving me 'Tintin' vibes, I don't have the albums with me to check which one though  :(

Very cool pictures! Lot's of imagination and humor on the setups.

very good - enjoyed them all.

For those who appreciate this style of art, I would recommend a small hard backed book called LITTLE PEOPLE IN THE CITY ... The street art of Slinachu, published by Boxtree.

It is not military related, but the principles of miniature interaction with the 'real world' is the focus of the book. Different and clever, just like the original work shown above.

Great idea and some very clever set ups. You could certainly call this art. I’ve seen similar shots in galleries.
