New York-based photographer Richard Silver is a passionate traveler, and his primary goal as an artist is to share his life experiences by creating beautiful photographs during his travels. Rather than shoot traditional photos, he uses techniques such as tilt shift, HDR, panorama, and time-slice in order to capture the world in eye-catching ways.
A major project he has been working on is called “Tilt Shift.” He has been photographing some of the world’s most famous locations and turning them into miniature scenes.
The project contains photos snapped in locations ranging from the famous structures of Machu Picchu to runners streaming down a road during the New York Marathon.
Silver says, “People always ask me, How do I make people look so small or why do I make people look so small? Simple, we are!” Thus, his goal with the project is to “give the viewer a new way of seeing themselves and their place in the world.”
