For a miniature creature, life in our world could be an entirely different set of rules. A simple change of scale for our everyday objects could create a whole new world. Photographer and art director Tatsuya Tanaka followed a similar line of thought in creating the Miniature Calendar. Presenting our world from a perspective of tiny humanoids, the series takes us on a journey through a world that is very much our own, and yet offers and entirely new perspective.
