Miniature Art Photographer and Illusion Artist, Tatsuya Tanaka!
The video "Fresh Faces," released by "Fresh Faces – Atarashii Hito - BS Asahi," introduces the miniature art photographer and illusion artist Tatsuya Tanaka.
Tatsuya Tanaka likes to use every day objects, such as stationery and food, to create the illusion of a miniature world in his pictures.
For example, using onigiri (rice balls) as mountains, broccoli as trees (video 1:09), or lettuce as waves (video 1:16), he can create a small world for his miniature dolls.
