Model People Photography by Slinkachu

London based photographer, Slinkachu, has been entertaining and inspiring people since 2006 with his unique street art installations.  They consist of miniature railway model figures placed in urban settings.

He photographs the charming tableaus closeup as well as from a distance providing some context to the actual citiscape backgrounds. It’s as if another world, albeit a tiny one, coexists with our own.

What has he been up to recently? Slinkachu said back in October, “I’ve just got back from Paris where I was helping to promote ReAct Paris, a conference organised by the European Parliament to tackle the problems of unemployment in Europe, particularly youth unemployment, which in some parts of Europe stand close to a miserable 30%. I was leaving miniature workers hidden around the streets of Paris and asking the question “Why is it so hard to find a job?”

The following  photographs are a couple of examples  taken in Paris for this event.  He shared them on his blog,appropriately titled Little People.
