Retro City Elgin Park

elgin-park_01

Photographer Michael Paul Smith brings the past to life today. Paul’s amazing photos are carefully crafted model sets with die-cast automobiles set against real life backdrops. The optical illusions are incredible.

Michael meticulously created the imagined city of Elgin Park, a magically realistic evocation of a midcentury American town. You won’t find the town of Elgin Park on a map, but you will find it all over the web and in the media. He creates these perfectly executed miniature street scenes with model vintage cars, which are photographed outdoors against actual backgrounds, believe it or not but without digital manipulation.
