Bill Finger – Mininature sets & photography

Bill Finger‘s work might seem a little surreal at first, everything looks normal but something isn’t quite right?

That’s because Bill is photographing hand built miniature sets. Using his background in Film he creates these miniature worlds and photographs them. The subtlety is something to be admired, usually photographers who use mini sets want to scream in your face that this isn’t reality, but Bill’s technique goes a lot further in allowing the viewer to ponder on the uncanniness of the images before figuring out that these aren’t full scale.

As I undertake my long project in building 3D printed sets and photographing them Bill’s subtlety is something to bear in mind, although I must be realistic in using 3D printing I will tire trying to make it look “real”.
