Incredibly detailed models by Elgin Park.

Photographer Michael Paul Smith creates and photographs Elgin Park, a 20th century town created through miniature 1/24th-scale models. Smith creates incredibly realistic photos by capturing the detailed dioramas with an ordinary compact camera, and his images have gone viral in recent years on the Internet (the project has over 70 million views on Flickr).
Everything in each of Smith’s scenes was made by hand — well, everything except the 1/24th-scale diecast car models. Animal wanted to give the world a glimpse of the brilliant mind behind the images, so the publishing group interviewed Smith and captured some behind-the-scenes footage of projects coming together.

Here are some recent behind-the-scenes photos and the resulting images of Elgin Park:
