MINIATURE CALENDAR - miniature figurines by Tatsuya Tanaka

       Since April 20th, 2011 every day Tatsuya Tanaka has been presenting a new photo of miniature figures set with everyday objects looking like something else. His fantasy seems endless and the project has gained many fans far beyond Japan. More than 1000 photos of curious comparisons render people in a playful mood and make them smile. Some of us may remember that similar comparisons have come to our heads, too, right?

      Tatsuya called his challenging project “Miniature Calendar”. It all started as a way of photographing his collection of diorama dolls but the success of the first photos inspired the photographer to continue.

The artist says that when he is making a scene he is thinking of making it understandable for all kinds of people, disregarding their age or nationality.
Cloudy, fine after
      Tatsuya Tanaka confesses that in his everyday life he is trying to keep almost everything that common people would have thrown away: packages, toilet paper rolls, sticks, tags, empty boxes and so on. You never know what will come of use in a stuff-demanding and long-lasting project like this!
