From the Author

Have you ever thought that a bunch of broccoli or parsleywould look like a forest?I am sure everyone has had a similar experience.This act of making objects resemble something else isoften called "Mitate," or "likening."It has been my lifework to capture this "Mitate" throughthe eyes of miniature people.Since I was posting my work every day on my websiteand other SNS sites like a page-a-day calendar, I startedto call it "MINIATURE CALENDAR." Begun in April 2011, itnow contains thousands of "Mitate."This collection is carefully selected and reconstructedfrom the huge archive of "MINIATURE CALENDAR."Let's kneel down and see the world from below. You willsurely find a lot of "Mitate" all around you!
