Thanks Suzanne — this Boing Boing article about Matthew Albanese’s miniature photography.

"Matthew Albanese [is] a photographer who builds meticulously detailed landscape models and then lights and shoots them to achieve amazing realism. My personal favorite is the Martian landscape made from paprika and charcoal." Also show here: Tornado made of steel wool, cotton, ground parsley and moss.
