Photographer Ben Thomas lets you explore the most famed cities in a way that looks as if it is more equipped to house ants than people.

In a photo series that may have Zoolander asking "is this a city for ants?" the Melbourne-based photographer has skillfully made use of the tilt-shift technique, which gives the scenic shots of city streets and monumental landmarks the appearance that they have suddenly shrunk down to an incredibly minuscule size.

Rather than the traditional photo landscapes of cities, which are of proper proportions, it gives you a new and fresh perspective and makes you feel as if you are able to easily pick up these buildings and cars and play around with them. In a style that he dubs a "playful effect," photographer Ben Thomas infuses a lighthearted approach to highlight the beauty and grandiose quality of some of the most iconic cities in the world.
