Poland’s Tomek Makolski is used to shooting commercials for the globe’s top car firms. But now the photographer has taken on a whole new challenge: taking shots of a Porsche supercar made of Lego.
Motoring fans might be disappointed that Makolski couldn’t take a full-size car onto the streets of Warsaw. Instead he took shots of locations around the city before shooting a smaller, Lego model in his studio. Visual illusions, clever camera work and post-production trickery came together to make the real magic in the final images.
“I wanted to play with viewer’s sense of scale and perception by inserting a life-size Lego Porsche GT3 model into the streets of Warsaw,” Makolski told The Calvert Journal. “[It was] creating an effect almost identical to a car spotter taking a photograph of a supercar.”
