History’s Most Iconic Photos Recreated as Miniature Still Lifes

is a photography project Switzerland-based photographers Jojakim Cortis and Adrian Sonderegger who recreate famous snapshots by building miniature sets and props using everyday materials like paper, cement, and model vehicles.

“In our free time, when there’s no money coming in, we decided to try to recreate the most expensive pictures in the world.”
