There seems to be a global trend of converting abandoned electrical stations and old power plants to museums or art galleries. CaixaForum Madrid (Spain), Tate Modern (UK) and The Power Plant (Canada), just to name a few.
I’ve always enjoyed tilt-shift photography, also known as miniature faking or diorama effect. It is a process in which a photograph of a life-size location or object is made to look like a photograph of a miniature scale model.
The conventional way to achieve this is to use a tilt-shift lens. However, such illusion can also be simulated by post-processing software. And, in recent years, there are even smartphone apps or camera features that can fake the tiny toy town effect right away.
