All the spectacular sights of the Tokyo landscape appear to have become miniature! This pocket-sized volume collects incredible bird's-eye views of Tokyo's bustling cityscape, shot using a tilt-shift photography technique that has the effect of seeming to shrink its subject--making one of the vastest cities in the world look like a miniature model. Epic skyscrapers, crowded city streets and even sumo wrestling matches shrink to the scale of tiny plastic toys in this one-of-a-kind impulse book.
Australian photographer Ben Thomas's work has been exhibited across the globe (recently in the USA, Paris, Berlin, Melbourne and Tokyo), has been featured in numerous publications and earned him awards internationally. His tilt-shift photography blog CityShrinker has been featured on Apartment Therapy, Notcot and many more.
