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.
