`They're Not Pets, Susan,' says a stern father who has just shot a bumblebee, its wings sparkling in the evening sunlight; a lone office worker, less than an inch high, looks out over the river in his lunch break, `Dreaming of Packing it all In'; and a tiny couple share a `Last Kiss' against the soft neon lights of the city at midnight.
Mixing sharp humour with a delicious edge of melancholy, Little People in the City brings together the collected photographs of Slinkachu, a street-artist who for several years has been leaving little hand-painted people in the bustling city to fend for themselves, waiting to be discovered. . .
`Oddly enough, even when you know they are just hand-painted figurines, you can't help but feel that their plights convey something of our own fears about being lost and vulnerable in a big, bad city.' The Times
'Slinkachu' is a London-based artist whose creations can be found in doorways and cracks in the pavement across the capital. This is the first collection of his work in book form. See more of his pictures at www.little-people.blogspot.com
