Don't these look like model cities? Amazingly, they're actually real. Italian photographer Olivo Barbieri shoots from helicopters, but to create the plastic-y look, he uses a tilt-shift lens, which allows him to control exactly what's in focus. "Like in a written page, we don’t read [it as an] image but one line at a time," Barbieri says here. We loved his work so much that we featured it in the first issue of baby Bene.
