Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All of life is here in Global Model Village—from the lowest low-rise views of Manhattan to the scorched flagstones of Marrakech, from West London to the West Bank. A tiny mother and child bustle through a dusty township in Cape Town, while a miniature informant whispers in a telephone booth in Beijing. Thumb-size riot police climb the Acropolis in Athens, while an inch-high woman pole-dances around a lamppost in a Hong Kong red-light district.
            Global Model Village collects the international works of Slinkachu, the London-based artist who as part of his “Little People Project” has been abandoning tiny model people on the mean streets of the world since 2006. Documented through photography, these little dramas of hope and tragedy, loneliness and humor, somehow get to the heart of what it means to be human, to be alone among millions of other people, all experiencing the melancholy and magic of life in the big city.

Synopsis:

With more than 150,000 copies of his first book sold, bestselling author and artist Slinkachu offers a new and perfect gift book – Little People: The Global Model Village captures the imagination in an extraordinary collection of photographs taken around the world.
