Little Big Krakow | Poland

Wawel Cathedral in Krakow (katedra wawelska)

As a child I was always fascinated by city models or miniatures. And just when I entered the inner courtyard of the Wawel Castle in Krakow, I saw a model of the very same thing. Not only that, but the miniature is positioned in a way that you can capture reality and its copy in a single photograph. Sure thing, I had to do that.

Do you know any other places where you can enjoy such a combination of model and reality?

Get it On Your Wall

Nico Trinkhaus
Sumfinity.com presents the hub for my works. I write about my impressions on my trips and during taking the photos. I try to provide you with insight into my artistic life, but the focus is always with the pictures. It fills me with pride when I see that my photos are sometimes viewed by approximately 150,000 people within 24 hours. I imagine that I can give all those people at least two seconds of pure pleasure. That’s 80 hours of happiness! In a world which is dominated by sad, upsetting and dismaying news, I’m so glad to be able to create a small counterpart.
