The world in miniature – Keith Loutit

Keith Loutit's work

The fascinating miniature world of Loutit

Yesterday I stumbled across the work of Sydney-based photographer Keith Loutit. His bathtub series of films shows Sydney in miniature. I was sent a short film by a company based in London called Grama Film. Grama made a series of films for the Guggenheim on Youtube but the one which really caught my eye was the one about Loutit. It begins with him in the Italian Dolomites and takes you into a fascinating journey of tilt-shift photography. ‘Selective focus’ and the ‘remapping of time’ support miniaturisation in filming, according to Keith who says miniaturisation is more relevant as the world becomes overcrowded and feels smaller. It’s fascinating and a brilliant piece of escapism for boys who’ve never left their toys behind. Click here to watch.
