Cooperative of Photography

Little People, Big Cities


UK-based photographer Slinkachu combines his passion for photography with his fascination of miniature models. By customising train set figures and handcrafting new elements with modelling clay, he seeks to create a narrative or emotion in a static shot. After setting up and photographing his scenes, he leaves the figures behind to the fate of the city. 

He says; “a lot of my images are about the alienation and loneliness that living in a city can create. Or the fears that people have in urban areas. This has always interested me and using tiny figures dwarfed by their surroundings works as a great analogy for this.”
