In their photographs, Water Martin and Paloma Muñoz isolate instances of tiny action, as characterized by doll-like figures. Here, the artists have captured a scene of acrobatics staged within a snowglobe. "We are trying to find things that surprise us," the artists have said of their work, "that have a critical combination of tragedy and comedy in our world we set the parameters for."

Walter Martin and Paloma Muí±oz work collaboratively to create mesmerizing miniature snowbound environments, then record them in vivid color photographs. At first glance the work is playful; on closer observation, it often reveals darker narratives: lone wanderers survey the frigid landscape, and people and creatures exhibit unnatural tendencies.

Martin and Muí±oz create the figures, either adapting ready-made figurines or shaping them out of clay. Martin works on the sets, painting and positioning the figures in constructed environments. The final compositions are captured in photographs by Muí±oz, which are meticulously stitched and adjusted digitally for the final effect.
