Photographer Matthew Albanese makes incredibly elaborate dioramas for the remarkably convincing landscape photos in his “Strange Worlds” series. The dioramas use forced perspective to create an illusion of depth and are made of a variety of found objects and food items (cooked sugar, for instance, serves as ice). Each diorama takes three to seven months to build and culminates in just one photograph. Albanese recently spoke to Flickr about his project:
