Incredible Strange Worlds Project by Matthew Albanese

Creativity has no limits, but pro skills are need to accomplish great things. When you were kids in school you probably used to see those awful looking dioramas in science fare made by some kids that were really trying, but probably didn't have the skills of Matthew Albanese.Matthew Albanese has made some astonishing dioramas for a project he called Strange Worlds, in which he shows us some incredible landscapes. If you didn't know they were dioramas, you would just think it was a set of fantastic shots of some real-world scenery. That's the art of illusion right there, my friends. That's some really talented person, and for more of his works, you should totally check his personal portfolio and facebook. He got more landscapes for you to visit. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;)My work involves the construction of small-scale meticulously detailed models using various materials and objects to create emotive landscapes. Every aspect from the construction to the lighting of the final model is painstakingly pre-planned using methods which force the viewers perspective when photographed from a specific angle. Using a mixture of photographic techniques such as scale, depth of field, white balance and lighting I am able to drastically alter the appearance of my materials. - Matthew AlbaneseNew Life Diorama made using painted parchment paper, thread, hand dyed ostrich feathers, carved chocolate, wire, raffia, masking tape, coffee, synthetic potting moss and cotton.Wildfire Diorama made from wood, moss, yellow glitter, clear garbage bags, cooked sugar, scotch-brite pot scrubbers, bottle brushes, clipping from a bush in bloom (white flowers) clear thread, sand, tile grout (coloring), wire, paper and alternating yellow, red and orange party bulbs.DIY Paradise Cotton, salt, cooked sugar, tin foil, feathers & canvas.Tornado Tornado made of steel wool, cotton, ground parsley and moss.Fields, After the Storm This model is simply made out of faux fur(fields), cotton (clouds) and sifted tile grout(mountains).
