Creating a world that is moody, dramatic and surprisingly realistic, Andrea Buzzichelli's miniature animals photography series is whimsical and hauntingly sad.

All in black and white, the miniature animals photography series shows a desolate world where the animals are set in a world of snow, either lost from home or trying to get to a safe and comforting place. The ethereal, soft and pretty snowy looks are countered with the lonely and displaced feelings that the animals strongly portray from a distance.

Whether the Italian artist created this imaginary world of miniature animals for artistic reasons or to reveal a deeper meaning is unclear. What is clear through is that Buzzichelli used photography techniques to experiment with scale and perspective, and he does it brilliantly.
