Tatsuya Tanaka masterfully captures the imaginations of his audience through his miniature life photography, where everyday objects and food are used to form playful and vivid scenes. In this cover photo of Tatsuya’s 2022 Miniature Life Calendar, I particularly love the vibrant colors of the fruit and the sense of action through the miniature people. The composition also draws you in to imagine the different stories that could be occurring within the scene. Relating to the reading by Meredith Davis on communication models, I feel as if this narrative potential in Tatsuya’s photograph actively invites the viewer to create their own meaning and become a co-creator of this art.
