Seung Woo Back
Frankly speaking, looking at real/faux miniature macro images proliferating everywhere has been a rather tiring experience. Nothing new is presented and one easily gets lost in the technicalities.
Enter Korean photographer Seung Woo Back’s Real World series.

Taken at Aiins World theme park in South Korea, these images feature the scaled-down models of world attractions. Confusion sets in when the viewer sees Korean junk bloats floating next to New York’s cityscape, in which he describes as “staged borders of ambiguity”.
I can’t seem to recall similar work by other photographers, would appreciate if someone could help me jog my memory in the comments. Thanks!
