Eszter Burghardt's 'Wooly Magma' from the Wooly Saga series

Miniature landscapes again – I love them so.  Maybe it’s the incredible detail that people, such as Eszter Burghardt manage to create with unexpected materials like wool, felt and fuzz, such as in the Wooly Magma photograph above, or perhaps it’s the age old child-like conflict that means that far away things often seem so small.

The photographs that Eszter Burghardt creates, with both foodstuffs and fiber, appeal to senses we might not often associate with scenery – our sense of touch and our sense of taste.  It’s that, coupled with the beauty of natural landscapes that she’s recreated, and the desire to reach out and touch these little worlds, that appeals to me so much.  That, and I love volcanic scenes, and I am particularly curious as to how the under-lighting has been achieved!
