No Country for Small Men: Diorama Photography of Miniature Crimes

Florian Tremp is a Switzerland-based magazine editor and designer by day, self-taught diorama photographer extraordinaire by night. His amazing 1:87 miniatures are meticulously staged as bloody crime scenes, police car chases, CSI investigations, shoot outs, and murders in progress. Ah, yes, he makes tranquil little detailed scenes of diners glowing in a rural dusk and steel trailer homes shimmering in the night, but our favorites are those with a sinister edge — the “crime scenes in flower pots” and, of course, the Coen Brothers-influenced No Country for Small Men series. They’re just a little disturbing… to scale. Check out some of Florian’s best in our slide show.
