Realistic Images of American Streets Using Toy Car Models and Forced Perspective

Self-taught photographer, Michael Paul Smith has received praise for his lifelike photographs of an imaginary town, Elgin Park, which was inspired by the town in Pennsylvania he grew up in.

To create the shot he positions a card table in different locations around Boston and elaborately positions vintage model cars on it. Without digital manipulation, Smith captures the shots with just natural light and actual backgrounds.

Check out Michael Paul Smith’s work below. It’s fascinating! xo

Reminds me when I was a kid my friends and I would put model planes or cars or other things on tables and then squat down so we were at eye level with them. It made them look so much bigger and more real.
