Ben Thomas is a Melbourne photographer whose City Shrinker series is a fascinating look at Melbourne through a tilt-shift lens. At first glance these look like dioramas, complete with model railway figures, set against a photo backdrop. But these are not views of any carefully crafted set, this is truly Melbourne! Thomas works his magic and as he says, “There is something about making a city look like a toy town that brings a smile to people’s faces and that's pretty cool.” Look out, New York may be in for a shrinking next.
