Can you believe the landscape photos above are actually pictures from an aquarium? Kim Keever builds small-scale dioramas that simulate tropical environments in his amazing series, Hawaii.
In an interview with Faith is Torment, Kim explains:
What makes these dioramas unusual is that they are created in a 200 gallon tank filled with water. Though I sometimes build a scene in front of and behind the tank, most of the “action” takes place in the tank with paint injected into the water for cloud formations. I use whatever materials I can find on the street, in stores and on the internet that might add to a perception of reality that is not quite what it seems.

In his gigantic body of work, Arno Rafael Minkkinen uses the human body in a truly ingenious way. Instead of the person being the center of focus, Arno cleverly aligns parts of the human body seamlessly with the rest of the picture.
