Miniature Calendar (2011-ongoing) by Tanaka Tatsuya

Everyone must have had similar thoughts at least once. Broccoli and parsley might sometimes look like a forest, or the tree leaves floating on the surface of the water might sometimes look like little boats. Everyday occurrences seen from a pygmy’s perspective can bring us lots of fun thoughts.

I wanted to take this way of thinking and express it through photographs, so I started to put together a “MINIATURE CALENDAR”. These photographs primarily depict diorama-style figures surrounded by everyday items. Just like a standard daily calendar, the photos are updated daily on my website and SNS page, earning it the name of “MINIATURE CALENDAR”.

It would be great if you could use it to add a little enjoyment to your everyday life.

Today is Shel Silverstein's birthday. I loved his poems as a kid. They were silly, and funny, and fun. As an adult, I can look back and see that his work had messages that I was too young to understand, but can now appreciate.

 “Underneath my outside face There’s a face that none can see. A little less smiley, A little less sure, But a whole lot more like me.”― Shel Silverstein, Every Thing on It
