Australian photographer Keith Loutit has come up with a novel way to visually document his beloved country: in simulated miniature. Loutit uses several techniques – including tilt-shift and time-lapse photography – to come up with his short films, which he says aim to “present Sydney as the Model City, and help people take a second look at places that are very familiar to them”. It’s remarkable to see actual scenes (everything from harbor views to a monster-truck derby) presented as though they existed in some sort of parallel stop-motion universe.
After the jump, a couple examples of his work. Any aspiring artists want to try similar techniques to capture North Texas in such a beautiful fashion?
