Kurt Moses

Kurt Moses takes fine art photographs of small figurines in our every day environment. The project of Un Petit Mode was created by himself and his wife, Edwige in 2010 in order to ‘capture a whimsical, evocative photo which indicates a storyline allowing the viewer to draw their own conclusion.’ They create all the scenes while travelling, including on beaches, New York City, Florida and even travelling to Death Valley, N.P. Husband and wife manipulate figurines in order to get them in the best position, ready for the camera. The photos are normally taken with a fish-eye lens in order to gain the largest amount of detail, background and general surroundings possible. Their work is also very weather dependent, and on their blog, mentioned that the weather has halted their progress of the shoots a few times! Their work is full of intricacy and delicacy, within the every day bustling environment in America.
