Minimiam: Miniature world of gourmandise

Stacks Image 4594

Akiko and Pierre have created a miniature world of gourmandise, the Minimiam. Relive your childhood emotions and smell, taste the photographic adventures that come alive on your plate.

Following an order in 2002, Akiko and Pierre develop a concept of using miniature train figurines to to illustrate stories of food.

The stories are usually in diptych format (two images). The first image shows a close up of the action of the figure, but the meaning is not explicit. The second image shows the general scene allowing the viewer to discover the meaning and to continue the adventure according to his or her own references.
