Miniature Worlds With Food

In his series “Minimize – Food”, photographer William Kass takes pictures of little life scenes with landscapes entirely made of food. Soya replaces trees, salmon becomes a sea, feta shapes a Greek temple and a pip is used as a grave. To discover.

The Sculpture ( Miniature Worlds ) and Photographic Art of Didier Massard

His series are conceived from his imagination while drawing from our collective romantic and touristic notions of nationality and place. His exotic locales created in his studio have evoked Ireland, China, India, Holland and the cliffs of Normandy. Massard works for long periods on each of these tableaux, and ruminates that “each image is the completion of an inner imaginary journey.” Roberta Smith wrote in The New York Times “color and space combine with fastidious detail to create a sense of illusion and artifice that is more usual to painting, Magic Realist painting in particular…one’s willingness to suspend disbelief is a measure of Massard’s skill.” Via

French artist Didier Massard’s photography had me perplexed until I looked more deeply into his process. Massard creates these amazing images by constructing a small detailed set design or dioramas and thoughtfully integrating lighting techniques. What strikes me most about these images is that they at first appear to be paintings or digitally rendered, but closer examination reveals layering and depth that is not possible to create digitally. I read how Massard uses manual techniques to create fabricated sets, but honestly could not believe the entirety of his process until viewing this short video, where he explains his work from his studio. In the video, he also explains how his work is inspired from real and imagined places, places he’d like to visit but realizes the limitations involved in this desire.The subjects of his work vary from nature to mythology to architecture, but all of them evoke a cinematic and magical realist quality.

Because it’s been many months since we first made the discovery, as a public service the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders would like to remind everyone that baby Horseshoe Crabs are incredibly small and awesomely cute. The wee hatchlings in these photos are baby Atlantic Horseshoe Crabs (Limulus polyphemus).

"Atlantic Horseshoe Crabs lay eggs 2,000 to 30,000 eggs, which hatch approximately 2 weeks later. Hatchlings stay in tidal areas for about a year before traveling into deeper areas of the ocean."

These little ones were recently collected from local tidal areas by husbandry staff from the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. They’ll be kept under quarantine for one month and then moved to the aquarium’s invertebrate touch tanks.
