Tatsuya Tanaka Crafts Intricate Miniature Calendar of Everyday Scenes


Since 2011, tatsuya tanaka has been engaged in his ‘miniature calendar‘ — a project which has seen the art director create a pocket-sized scene of everyday life, on a daily basis. What initially started as a means of photographing his collection of diorama dolls amongst familiar settings constructed to scale, has now unfolded into a long-term venture… One that he’s not likely to stop anytime soon. We spoke with the japanese creative about what fuels his ideas for 365 days of the calendar year, and of the more than 1000 scenes he’s made, which ones he’s particularly fond of and have a personal meaning for him.



  • I LOVE it!

    I was also stunned when I visited the Micro Museum in Kiev.
