Creative Photos of Figurines Going About Their Miniature Lives in Our Big World

In English, the title of husband and wife photographer team Kurt and Edwige Moses‘ photo series Un Petit Monde translates into “A Small World,” but there’s nothing small about the world the duo have created for the series, only its inhabitants.

The series began all the way back in 2010 “as a way to relax and explore a more creative side of my photography,” explains Kurt. “It has grown into a passion of ours and we now focus 75% of our time creating, processing, planning and building a library of fine art photographs.”

Kurt and Edwige travel all over the United States in their vintage RV (you can read about that here) setting up miniature scenes that depict everything from the daily grind of a 9-5 lifestyle, to adventures like skiing or battling a giant squid, to more relaxing endeavors like gardening — although gardening takes on a whole new meaning when the flowers are bigger than you are.

It’s a playful series that is meant to make you smile and, perhaps, inspire a bit of wanderlust at times:

“Un Petit Monde combines the challenges of capturing an evocative, aesthetically pleasing image while documenting a scene in the real world environment using only available light and existing conditions,” writes Kurt on the project’s About page. “Ultimately, it is our mission to share some of the fun and joy for life with you through our project.”

To see the rest of the series (and there is A LOT more) or learn more about the husband and wife behind it, head over to the Un Petit Monde website or follow their adventures on their Life in a Travco blog.
