History’s famous photos reimagined in miniature

A new book from Thames & Hudson features more than 30 model versions of historic images hand-crafted by Jojakim Cortis and Adrian Sonderegger. We speak to the photographers about bringing the book to life

The last surviving photo of the RMS Titanic at sea before it hit an iceberg and sank during its maiden voyage. An image of Edwin Aldrin’s dusty bootprint pressed into lunar soil during the Apollo moon landings. A still taken from a video showing clouds of ominous, black smoke billowing from the World Trade Centre during 9/11. Most of us will have seen these snapshots of significant events hundreds, if not thousands of times since they were taken. As well as becoming enduring symbols for some of humanity’s greatest achievements and atrocities, images like these often take on a life of their own, spawning countless homages and parody versions over the years.
