“Nature is paradisiacal, you could say, but it is in fact a jungle… it is one big struggle, one big fight”

Photographer Ruud van Empel was born in Breda, The Netherlands, in 1958. He studied at the St Joost Academy of Art, moving to Amsterdam in the late 1980s to work on his career as a visual artist. As one of the most pioneering and innovative contemporary digital photographers practising today, Ruud’s work is held in the collections of several major galleries and museums around the world and has been extensively exhibited.

“My idea was to construct a photograph that would look ordinary… but where everything was made up”

Tiny People in a Big World

Tiny People in a Big World

TinyPeople07aA Thai photographer dubbed คนตัวเล็ก, which literally translates to ‘Small Person’, has taken photos that have gained nearly 180,000 fans on Facebook.

Utilising a technique known as ’tilt-shift photography’, คนตัวเล็ก captures engaged couples on their special day, as well as the weeks leading up to it. He’s so far depicted a woman throwing a VW Combi Van at her partner, a groom being stolen by a flying insect, and a bride about to run over her man with a motorbike.
