Photographers Create Incredibly Realistic Dioramas of Iconic Photos

Ikonen, have you heard of it? What about photographers Jojakim Cortis and Adrian Soneregger? If not, you’re a little behind on the times but the good news is it’s not too late. And this is the kind of project you just can’t miss out on. It’s also the kind of conversation starter that will make you the star of your next dinner party.

Ikonen started as a joke, a joke to recreate a very expensive photograph, but it somehow turned into a project to recreate history’s most iconic and recognizable shots in excruciating detail. Just take a look at the photographs! These artists are constructing miniature scenes that when photographed, resemble the original… only, you won’t be able to tell which is which!  [h/t]
