Adam Makarenko

by Jonah Samson in Culture on 27 February 2008


With bee populations in decline over the past several years, Adam Makarenko has created an imaginary world where bees flourish.

In his Miniature Apiary series, the Canadian artist explores the exploitation of bees within a fictitious world he has called the Langstroth Range, which is a land of rare plants and giant bees that becomes endangered when a man named William Bjorn moves in.

Working with a film miniature-maker, Makarenko's world was created from a series of intricate dioramas which were then photographed using special film equipment that was able to alter perspective.

You can see more of his wonderful creations on his website.
