My work involves the construction of small-scale meticulously detailed models using various materials and objects to create emotive landscapes. Every aspect from the construction to the lighting of the final model is painstakingly pre-planned using methods which force the viewers perspective when photographed from a specific angle. Using a mixture of photographic techniques such as scale, depth of field, white balance and lighting I am able to drastically alter the appearance of my materials.

- "Box of Lightning"Thanks everyone! To achieve the lightning effect i built a large box with a plexiglass face painted black. I then etched out the lighting so light could pass through. I wanted the lighting bolt to be the only light source in the image visit www.matthewalbanese.com to see the actual diorama.
