These Aerial Images of a Fire Station Make Firefighters Look Miniature

This fire station photo series by Chan Dick is taken from a unique aerial perspective. Dick accidentally stumbled upon his distinct view of the fire station while at work. When looking down through a ventilation window, he was given a direct bird's eye view of a nearby fire station.

Dick began photographing from this angle and discovered many things he never knew about the job of firefighters. Apart from physical training, Dick found it impressive that the firemen also played volleyball, washed firetrucks, and helped guide tours of students. Visually, this unique point of view makes it look as though the fire station photographs are miniature toys. The photographs deceptively trick the eye into thinking that photos are carefully constructed dioramas.
