Honjo’s images in Small Planet are created by taking an aerial view with a very shallow depth of field.The photographer uses this effect in order to make the images look miniaturized, like a toy diorama. Honjo uses this technique in a variety of locations: dense cityscapes, warehouses, railyards and seashores, construction sites, swimming pools, roadways, sporting events and parks. The clever inversion is, of course, that these scenes which look entirely fake/constructed are indeed all too real.
