Toronto. Shades of Austin Powers! Sports photographer and well known PHSC member and past president, Les Jones, dropped me a note saying, “Incredible imagination and execution, See #15 especially – ps Anyone have a 1.5” diameter brass lens to sell?”
Les’s comment refers to the miniature work of Japanese photographer and artist, Tatsuya Tanaka, as displayed by the site ‘digital synopsis‘ amongst others. The wonderful daily displays brought to mind another PHSC member and past president, Ed Warner, who once created a miniature studio in an old camera. Ed showed off his craftsmanship at one of our ‘show and tell’ meetings.
Those of you who enjoy shooting table top photographs or creating miniature scenarios to photograph will be delighted and inspired by this artist. Oh yes, and feel free to drop me a note if you happen to have a spare 1.5 inch brass lens for Les and I will pass your message along!
