An Historically Accurate 19th Century Photo Studio ... Built in 1:12 Scale!

Posted by Sharon Hayslip on

Turkey-based artist Ali Alamedy has been building miniature sets for the last seven years. He recently came across documentation of Charles Miner's photography studio from the early 1900s. Inspired by the way sunlight was used to illuminate studio sets, Alamedy decided to build his own version in 1:12 scale. This project took him over nine months and built more than 100 miniature objects designed specifically to fit the era. One of the hardest challenges during the completion of the model was the camera, as each fold in the bellow in real life is just 3 cm. The final 1:12 scale camera has 124 2 mm folds that were all meticulously created by hand.
