Photographer Shoots Fantastical Scenes Using Miniature Toy Props

His work is inspired by the surrealism of Salvador Dali and the magic realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He creates elaborate miniature worlds using everyday objects and toy props. These environments are then photographed and edited to create dreamlike landscapes.

Almost a decade ago, Hernández decided to combine his love for toys and scale models with his passion for photography and digital manipulation to create something different. It didn’t take so long for the “new” approach to photography to catch the attention of the scene. Afterward, brands all over the world wanted to make commercial projects with his concept.

When it comes to editorial photography, a little ingenuity can go a really long way. And marketing cars is expensive.

Unless you hire Felix, who doesn’t need a real car to make the magic work. He does it with a $32 toy replica, and as we can see from his previous miniaturization projects, you can’t tell the difference.

He uses his imagination and creativity to create amazing, detailed, and realistic scenes with his own hands.

“What’s really cool is doing as much as you can in-camera. For snow scenes, I use wheat flour. For desert scenes, I use corn flour. For atmosphere, I add smoke. For rain, I spray water. For droplets, I add corn syrup.“.

Felix Hernández brings digital art Back to the Future

His work is truly unique because he creates scenes on a miniature scale, photographs them in such a way that it seems life-size, and then recreates them on a larger scale. His project featuring the DeLorean from Back to the Future is one of our favorites.

Felix recreated the DeLorean car on a miniature scale and used a combination of smoke, lighting, fire, and digital artistry to create a surreal result.
