Miniature Art

American photojournalist Christopher Boffoli has spent three years capturing a project which he calls 'Disparity.' These everyday scenes use only supplies from the supermarket and tiny plastic figures. Each scene is planned by Boffoli before he assembles each picture in his studio. All of the food has to be cut and arranged before the figures can be placed on them - sometimes taking hours to complete!

Boffoli said: "I have always been interested in size disparity and a juxtaposition of scales between people and things ever since I owned a tiny model train world as a kid."

The series of images are inspired by Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz's 'Travellers' - in which the artists placed small figurines in disturbing scenes inside snow globes.
