Artist Uses Forced Perspective To Make Miniature Car Models Look Like Real Cars

Incredible miniature model artist Michael Paul Smith has created a wonderful series of photographs illustrating the cars in a 1950s American town of his own imagination called Elgin Park. The artist uses clever forced perspective tricks to place the vehicles he creates into real-world life-sized settings, and his painstaking attention to detail ensures that the miniature model cars hold up to the scrutiny of a close-up shot. Luckily, he also provides us with paired shots to show how he created the perspective illusion. You can find more photos on his website or his Flickr.
