For over 10 years, photographer Tanaka Tatsuya has been creating daily landscapes using miniature figurines surrounded by human necessities. The landscapes offer a humorous—and cheeky— perspective into the mundane objects of everyday life, such as broccoli, face masks, and toilet paper. With over 2 million followers, Tanaka Tatsuya has exhibited around the world, including Taiwan, Japan, and Finland. The artist most recently staged an exhibition at The Mizuno Museum in Nagano prefecture.

Miniature Worlds / Tatsuya Tanaka
Tanaka writes of his inspiration: “Broccoli and parsley might sometimes look like a forest, or the tree leaves floating on the surface of the water might sometimes look like little boats. I wanted to take this way of thinking and express it through photographs, so I started to put together a MINIATURE CALENDAR.” He hopes that his pieces "add a little enjoyment to your everyday life."
