People might dismiss the latest work of artist Manuel Archain as one of the many playful dioramas that have cropped up all over the Internet over the last few years. Yet unlike the photographic portfolios of Isaac Cordal and Christopher Boffoli, artist Manuel Archain doesn't use miniature toys as his models. Instead, he has shrunk real-life people to fit into surreal everyday situations.

From walking about a fully laid kitchen table to peering at work on a home study desk and commuting past kettles and toasters in a office, artist Manuel Archain's indulges his vast imagination through such creative scenes. Hailing from Argentina, he has been honing his artistic abilities since the age of 13, capturing his audience with similarly impossible imagery over the last four years.
