Have I mentioned how much I love Improv Everywhere? Okay okay, but I haven’t mentioned them at all this week! (Yes, I realise it’s Monday) What you see below is their latest work which involved no mirrors, just a healthy number of identical twins!

Split Second!

The Morning News recently featured the excellent work of Barbara Probst. In her series “Split Second”, Probst utilizes multiple cameras to capture the same exact second from different viewpoints.

What you are looking at is a real place. Those “figurines” are actually actors dressed as toy soldiers (complete with fake stands their feet). Hunter utilizes a miniaturizing technique called “tilt shift photography” and selects locations based on their “already artificial quality”.
