A tribute to 138 years of cinema by UK filmmaker Vugar Efendi. To wit:
…you remember the movies not for the most intricate plot twists or the elaborate set pieces but rather the characters and the emotions they convey.
Celebrated historical photographs painstakingly recreated as miniature dioramas by Swiss photographers Jojakim Cortis and Adrian Sonderegger. What started as a joke in 2012 has since evolved into an ongoing project.
I just had the weirdest conversation with the owner of Flanagans Furniture in Bray. When I pointed out that his photograph was actually a man crying as German tanks rolled in to Paris during WW2 [or something equally poignant] he shrugged and said “well we don’t mean it like that”
