They’re alive! Small cardboard people

Anton Tang, a talented artist and blogger from Singapore, has taken to the habit of photographing plastic “cardboard people” in typical, everyday settings and environments.

The special thing about these photos is that they add life to the tiny characters, and that gives you the impression that they all have a story to tell. The photos themselves are absolutely stunning. The right combination of lighting and angles makes the “cardboard people” look average-sized and not small.

Another artist has done a similar thing by using small cement figures and placing them on the streets of several European cities.

Daughter, sister, wife, mother and writer. I spend half of my free time writing and the other half reading contemporary literature. I like to start my day with half an hour of yoga and then I head over to my desk with a cup of green tea to start working on my sci fi novel. On weekends I like to head over to the country side for a breath of fresh air and to catch up with my mom.

    Wow, is it possible to buy high res images? This is something, what I really liked to have in my living room.

    Thanks for this article. I would also like to mention that it can become hard if you find yourself in school and starting out to create a long history of credit. There are many learners who are merely trying to make it and have an extended or good credit history are often a difficult point to have.
