Elgin Park

Elgin Park from Animal on Vimeo.

Elgin Park is a lot of things: a 1950’s utopia, a fantastical world, and an optical illusion. Artist Michael Paul Smith’s imaginative town – composed entirely of miniatures – delighted audiences worldwide when his photo series went viral. For the first time, the documentary Elgin Park dives into the life of this charming, reclusive artist to reveal the dark inspiration behind his work.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. Fascinating to get an inside peek into his process and his own perspective on his life. It reminded me of Marwencol, which is a similar story about a man who creates his own world – his is more character driven than Elgin Park, though. I’m pretty sure it’s available on Netflix if you’ve never seen it.
