Michael Paul Smith is a photographer who plays with model cars. His long career includes the advertising field where he was an art director, a textbook illustrator, a newspaper editorial artist, a museum display designer, and a model maker. Since retiring Michael has created Elgin Park, a miniature town where he builds scenes using vintage model cars and buildings of which he then photographs to create realistic images that go back in time. His 1/24 scale recreations are of everyday America from the mid-20th century ranging from the 1920s to the mid-1960s. The details are incredible and no Photoshop is used to create his timeless images.
