On the occasion of the exhibition “(Un)real utopia” by Naoki Honjo at Top Museum, the museum of photography in Tokyo, we are going to interest you in our article in a particular photographic process: the tilt shift. This process, used by Naoki Honjo, transforms photographs of a real landscape into an artificial miniature landscape photograph, the real world becoming a dummy world, where men are transformed into figurines, cars, toys and buildings, in model decorations.
