I wrote about this a couple of days ago on my own blog, but I think it's worth recycling for a wider audience.

Naoki Honjo is a Japanese photographer who uses a rather unusual technique to achieve unusual results. Using a "tilt shift" lens, Honjo's photos screw with your sense of focus and depth perception, fooling the eye into believing that it's looking at a small scale model. But it's not; all of these photos are of real, life-size scenes, taken from vantage points like buildings or TV cranes.

 

 

You can see more examples of Honjo's work online here, and tilt-shift photography by other people here and here. No doubt 'true' art lovers would consider his work hokey and gimmicky. I think it's cool as hell.
