Artist Richard Tuschman Captures 1930s Poland in Detailed Dioramas

Tuschman6

“Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz” is a 17 image series of Richard Tuschman’s highly detailed dioramas. He shoots the models separately and composites them in post (more on his process here). While the Holocaust isn’t addressed directly, the sequence follows the daily routines of a Jewish family living in Krawkow in the 1930s, creating a beautiful mix of dreamy nostalgia and the looming threat of things to come. See more images below.
