Life-Size

The Life-Size series by Cynthia Greig explores the interaction between humans and miniature objects as if they were functioning tools or possessions. To push the concept further Greig says, "I print the image so that the original object appears to approximate "life-size" scale, disturbing perceptual expectations and a natural sense of order."

Greig's photographs blur the line between our perception of size and reality. The appearance of a gigantic and fantastical world evokes a natural desire for curiosity and discovery. I just love the power of imagination...
