car spotting: tomek mąkolski puts LEGO porsche GT3 on the streets of warsaw

warsaw-based photographer tomek mąkolski — specialized in lifestyle, fashion, and cars — diversifies the streets of his city through the use of his image-creation talent. titled ‘car spotting’, the artist’s new series features six photographs of an orange porsche GT3 made of LEGO hitting the streets of poland’s capital.



by sharing his work, mąkolski wants to play our perception — the car inserted into the images looks naturally life-sized, while the frame angles are so common for car photography that you wouldn’t even think that the porsche is, in reality, very small. to see more works of tomek mąkolski, visit his website or instagram page.
