Little People in the City: The Street Art of Slinkachu

'Oddly enough, even when you know they are just hand-painted figurines, you can't help but feel that their plights convey something of our own fears about being lost and vulnerable in a big, bad city' — The Times

These intriguing, dark, and sometimes comic macro photos capture the trials & tribulations of city life for its smallest "inhabitants" (tiny painstakingly-painted figurines that are arranged and then left to brave the world on their own). View more of the artist Slinkachu's work on his blog, www.little-people.blogspot.com.

A book of photos and stories, Little People in the City, has also just been published—available September 5.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
