Small World (15 Tilt-Shift Photos)

Grand Central Terminal, New York

Bryan Solarski travels around the world, visits some of the world's most famous landmarks, and shrinks them. He uses a popular technique called "tilt-shift." The viewer is cast back into a period of childhood, when everything experienced feels larger-than-life.

"I wanted to recreate the dreamlike feeling of actually being in these places in a playful way," says Solarski. "And I think tilt-shift is popular right now (and was a good way to do that), because it gives the viewer a sense of being in a smaller world, a bit like the way the world looks to a kid."
