These stunning landscape images should belong in National Geographic magazine but they are actually models made using household items. Artist Matthew Albanese spends hours on his sculptures – whose materials include tile grouting, cinnamon and steel wool – and then brings them to life using clever photography.
"My work involves the construction of small-scale meticulously detailed models using various materials and objects to create emotive landscapes. Every aspect from the construction to the lighting of the final model is painstakingly pre-planned using methods which force the viewers perspective when photographed from a specific angle. Using a mixture of photographic techniques such as scale, depth of field, white balance and lighting I am able to drastically alter the appearance of my materials."
