UK artist Slinkachu started his Little People Project way back in 2006 by taking miniature train set characters, remodeling and painting them, and then leaving them around the city to fend for themselves.
“The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography, and the titles I give these scenes aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed. But underneath this, there is always some humour. I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works.”
