Photo Studio complete with Bathing Beauty Cut-Outs

An Historically Accurate 19th Century Photo Studio Built in 1:12 Scale by

Turkey-based artist Ali Alamedy had been building miniature sets for seven years when he came across documentation of Charles Miner's photography studio from the early 1900s. Inspired by the way sunlight was used to illuminate studio sets, Alamedy decided to build his own version in 1:12 scale. The project took him over nine months, using hundreds of feet of wood, and building more than 100 miniature objects designed specifically to fit the era.
Due to few images being available of photography studios at that time, Alamedy read extensively to figure out what tools, techniques, styles, and colors were used within the studios (all images were in black and white). One of the hardest challenges during the completion of the model was the camera, as each fold in the bellow in real life is just 3 cm. The final 1:12 scale camera has 124 2 mm folds that were all meticulously created by hand.
You can take a look at more of Alamedy’s miniature scenes on his Instagram and Facebook. (via PetaPixel).


  1. Outstanding, very clever and imaginative ! WOW !!

  2. The internet has made it possible for us to stay in our homes but still get all of the software we need. Some free, which we would never see in stores, and others cost money. But usually the amount is less than anything we would normally see in stores. clipping path service provider

  3. For small projects in particular, a slide scanner can be a very good purchase. Dedicated scanners take either film strips or mounted slides. SLIDE SCANNERS

  4. Your wedding photographer should NOT dump a disc of photos on you and disappear after the wedding day. Some photographers will sell you a disc of high resolution photos, give them to you, and that's it. Your wedding photographer should provide value-add services and products after your wedding day - for example, photo books or albums, photo prints, and wall art. wedding photographer
