Macchesematte’s miniature life project was born following the passion for photography. His project mimics life in a micro level. Playing with normal objects and miniature people doing normal work. Macchesematte’s work will take you to another world.
I could not describe because it is born in a few lines, is the sum of experiences and passions that have contributed. I like to point out the contradictions of modern society, I can not afford to pay models, creating sets and have a real studio for myself so miniatures appear to be an excellent solution.
As I said above, the goal is to focus attention on the contradictions/bad habits of modern society. Unfortunately, the ideas are many looking like we are managing our planet and our society. I hope to do this in light but significant way, possibly with a smile.
I photograph thumbnails. Sometimes called diorama. As a style of photography are considered still lives. My inspiration if we talk about style and type of photos, not contents, is by artists such Slinkachu, Tatsuya Tanaka, Cak Soekier and others. There are many photographers searching on internet that are beginning to make this a real genre of photography. This make me happy.
Do what makes you free, it will be useful to someone.
Macchesematte or Matteo is currently working as electronic designer. He was born in 1984 and lives in the countryside near Florence (Italy). After playing in a band, having tried with 3D animations he started to take pictures. Basically, he was searching for something he can do when he want, if he want, and no one tells me what to do. So now he have fun little people. See more of his works on his website.
