Photographer Joel Robinson inserts himself in an imagined world where people are about the same size as a bug.

In a style that resembles the shrunken down characters in 'Honey I Shrunk the Kids,' the Canadian native imagines up a fairy tale society where books are used as a tent and a typewriter is used more as steps than for writing. These charming self portraits have a dominant written word theme to them as can be seen in the reoccurring novels and pages.The filters he uses along with the recoloring of the surroundings around him give these pictures a more whimsical and fairy tale feel.

Whether he is seen floating away by a red balloon in his self portraits or behind the lens creating these shots with Photoshop, photographer Joel Robinson succeeds at captivating the true essence of childhood.
