Jason Isley certainly has an admirable sense of humor. As an underwater photographer, he doesn't merely record what he observes but rather, creates fictional scenarios using miniature toys in appropriate settings and photographs the comedic moments that emerge.
Some examples of the scenarios he created are of a sea slug getting a speeding ticket, an angry fish yelling at a toy gardener to get out of her garden and humans getting attacked by a giant fish monster.
The photographing of this series predictably required a lot of patience as one cannot exactly direct sea slugs through role play.
The artist explained, "I came across the work of Christopher Boffoli and Slinkachu who had both used miniatures in still-life sets and suddenly thought ‘what if you actually shot them with living creatures?"
