The Strange Worlds of Matthew Albanese

I happened on this amazing artist while looking at Earth Day photos on This guy absolutely amazes me. Not only is he a great photographer…. he actually CREATES each scene he photographs!

“Through immaculate lighting and meticulous curation of tactile materials — faux fur for grass, cotton wool for clouds, bottle brushes for shrubs — Albanese creates uncannily realistic miniature worlds of wonder.”

“Sugarland,” made out of 20 pounds of sugar, jello and corn syrup. Albanese grew the crystals in his studio over the course of two months.

Click on the picture or visit to see an amazing photo gallery of his work.
Or visit for more information about how he creates them. 

I’m awestruck!
