Beautiful image! Very happy with this purchase. Item arrived in perfect condition, as always. I now own three prints from this shop (purchased two for myself and received another as a gift) and have been extremely pleased with each one. Thank you so much!

I purchased this picture because it reminded me of my husband and I being able to go on a trip similar to this scene one day. I purchased four of the 8x 10 pictures one to represent each season and this was my choice for winter. It is absolutely adorable. In person and up close it is even more beautiful. I love this as an addition to my set of four!
A little world made of paper
I make miniature worlds out of paper. I ink up a paper called Yupo paper, cut it into layers and set inside a miniature theater. I play with the lighting, and adjust the elements and then photograph the scenes. I often take 50 or more photos to get the one I am looking for.
I discovered working in this way through making tunnel books. They are a Victorian invention that a member of the Movable Book Society introduced me to as a teen. I made dozens, and began making dioramas too with cams, levers and light.
After the birth of my daughter I thought it would be fun to make some again and explained my idea to my husband. He surprised me with a miniature theater for Christmas! It was perfect. I have been making the photographs I sell here at Theater Clouds now for the last 3 years in this way. I have also made some into permanent pieces, some into illustrations for books, and some into installations. And... soon I hope some very rudimentary animations.
To see works in progress, keep in touch through my blog, website and Facebook page - Theater Clouds.
