Soheni Nishino and his ace diorama maps

Regular visitors to this site, apparently there are a couple, will know that I’m a sucker for a good photomontage. I’ve even attempted a couple myself. So quite naturally I am going to adore the work of Sohei Nishino and his diorama map series, which are currently on display at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in Chelsea.

Nishino takes pictures, lots, of cities and then pastes them together. The results are a combination of a landscape and a map that reminds me of the work of Stephen Walter
