Clemens Wirth is an Austrian miniature model artist, and macro filmmaker/photographer best known for his quirky short videos. He painstakingly hand-crafts all of his miniature characters and sets, which he then stages for his short films — his footage has often been used for commercials and film credits.
When asked how he got into his unique art, Wirth says: “My passion is macro photography, model building and title design. During my studies I got myself a DSLR camera and started to make my first steps in macro-photography. The world and details you can find in macro photography fascinated me ever since then… For my final project in my studies, I designed a title sequence for a first world war movie called “Herbst”. At first I wanted to work with pewter figures, but the variety was very little, so I searched for alternatives and found model train figures.”
His tiny world is so imaginative, and we absolutely adore these macro shots he’s captured. Such a unique craft, such a unique series! What do you think of Wirth’s miniature art?
We love unique photography! If you have some great shots of your own, make sure you check out our photo to canvas prints.
