The aesthetic goal of my work is for the images to look like miniature scenes through tilt-shift style photography. This technique allows the images to become more playful and inviting, in addition to allowing the viewers to experience the locations by consuming themselves in the magnitude of the landmark. Having the locations shown in this way brings the viewer back to when they were a child because things seem smaller, as if you are playing with Legos or action figures. Viewers can recall creating scenes that look similar to this when they were younger and incorporates the playful and innocent aspects from that time into the images. All of this allows the viewer to see the same exact iconic landmarks but from a different perspective: a perception of adolescence and angular dimensions rarely captured.

Bryan Solarski creates photographs meant to look like “miniature scenes” by using “Tilt-shift style photography.” In his photos, the people and places seem quite small “as if you are playing with Legos or action figures.” He strongly believes in the value of traveling and having new and different experiences. Bryan admires the work of photographers like Massimo Vitali, Thomas Prior, and Nick Brandt. He currently lives in New York. Fun fact: he was in a Cheerios commercial as a baby.

This turned out exactly like pictured. I love the perspective and that it looks like a perfect combination of modern art and photography- D Polite
This print is pure fun. I like that it first look it appears to be a diorama or miniature but as you look longer you realize it is photograph of a live scene. Taking away the focus from the individual people and forcing the viewer to absorb the whole scene first forces the eye to look deeper at the picture and re-evaluate their first impression.- K Harder
