Michael Paul Smith Recreates His Home Town With Realistic Models

January snowfall 1959

Michael Paul Smith has been recreating the town he grew up in by building amazing models and dioramas, which when photographed look quite real.

What started out as an exercise in model building and photography, ended up as a dream-like reconstruction of the town I grew up in. It’s not an exact recreation, but it does capture the mood of my memories.
