These Surrealist Nightmare Photos Are Very Real

By Jesus Diaz on at

Frank Kunert's photographs are crazy. They show surreal places that don't exist, exquisite photos of tennis courts shaped as skating half-pipes or slides for kids that end on highways. All of them are real—but tiny.

Kunert creates his tiny detailed models and then captures them in a realistic way. I like to think about them as anti-tilt-shifting images. And I wish some of them existed at full scale, like the toilet pool. Or that slide that ends in a lion cage. [Frank Kunert via Petapixel]
