Artist creates colourful mini worlds by placing tiny figurines with fruits, vegetables and household objects

A photographer has created mini worlds by setting up 2cm-tall figurines in scenes made from fruit, veg and other objects from the house.The colourful photos show figures hiking over avocados, camping by a cauliflower and abseiling in a bell pepper.David Gilliver, 41, arranged one hundred dioramas in one hundred from the first day of 2021 up to April 10 after setting himself a challenge to boost his creativity.Other comic scenes include a man in a police line--up with Gummi bears, a red carpet made of bubble gum ribbon, and a skateboarder on a spray bottle nozzle.David said: "The main purpose behind the project was to maximise my creativity during lockdown and add some cheer online with my daily uploads."I decided that I was going to create and photograph a new miniature artwork each day, for 100 days, or until my imagination ran dry."Most of the images were set up from David's desk at home in Gartcosh, Glasgow, which each diorama taking between three and four hours to capture from start to finish.The artist said: "Some took most of the day to get just right, whereas some were short and sweet and were photographed and edited within the hour. "Something like three hundred to four hundred hours went into this project."He estimates that, over the 100 days, David has taken around five thousand photos with his Canon 5D Mark III and 100mm Macro Lens.He has created series within them like the 'Mini Olympics' sports events and 'Gilliver's Travels' that follow an aeroplane flying around his home.He said: "I found myself writing down new ideas most nights to ensure I didn't forget any."I personally really enjoyed the creations that focus on travel and holidays, I am starting to crave the ability to travel further afield."I found that creating these images was a very cathartic process - an active imagination has really helped during the lockdowns."The work not only acts as David's personal "therapy", but it creates bonding time with his six-year-old daughter Léa who enjoys helping with her dad's set-ups.Dad-of-one David said: "I hope that the work raises a smile, and I also hope that some of the work helps to inspire others to get creative with Macro Photography."I think especially during the latest lockdown people appreciated the work more than usual as it helped to lighten the mood a little over winter."To see more of David's work visit www.davidgilliver.com or his Instagram @dgilliver.
