Renditions of Historical Events in Dioramas by Jasper de Beijer
Dutch artist Jasper de Beijer’s creates and photographs large-scale models made of drawn material and constructed bodies, environments, and ephemera, giving the resulting images a dreamlike quality. In carefully researching and creating these scenes, de Beijer aims to engage the ways we understand images of historical significance. The resulting photos are both powerfully complex and eerily familiar.
The photo series is called Mr. Knight’s World Band Receiver, a reference to Christopher Knight, who abandoned society in 1986 at 20 years old, living in Maine’s woods for 27 years with no access to media except for a transistor radio.
