The photo series titled Souvenir by Lonneke Van Der Palen, a photographer based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, embraces the idea of travel without any actual travel involved. As the tag line of the series states, "Memories of a journey never made." Craftily constructed, the scenes don't even try that hard to mask the fact that they are fake. Instead, it allows onlookers to appreciate it for what it is: a clever interpretation of experiences that often feel as though they have been imagined after the fact.

From the mini great pyramids and a sugar cube igloo to artificial scenic backdrops and lego palaces, Souvenir by Lonneke Van Der Palen is a fun series that is entertaining and thought-provoking.
