Small People: The Tiny World of Bettina Güber


Bettina Güber is a talented Germany-based photographer who creates a tiny world of fun-filled adventures with her miniature toy figurines and life-sized props. Calling the project “Small People”, Güber’s tiny and charming characters deal with everyday activities just like the rest of us. Some are having their morning coffee, others are dancing with their friends and one curious character is trying to strike a deal with Death. The difference is that these small people are surrounded by an enormous world. You can see a chef who’s just a speck amongst a pile of lettuce and a waiter ready to serve your wine, on top of a champagne bottle. By using these extreme size disparities, the German artist takes the viewer on a tiny magical adventure through another world.
