Recreating the Past with Forced Perspective Photography

October 20, 2013 | in Photography

American photographer Michael Paul Smith for more than a quarter-century is interested in a kind of photography that is defined as forced perspective photography.

All that Michael Paul Smith needs are miniature retro car models and a relevant to the epoch urban landscape. According to the author, he tries to recreate the life of a small American town of the middle of the last century. In post-production, he uses several filters to give his photos a vintage look. The project even got a book. It is entitled Elgin Park: An Ideal American Town.
