Minimiam Project by Akiko Ida and Pierre Javelle.
Minimiam (meaning “Mini Yum”) is a creative union of husband and wife who create tiny worlds of food with their little people doing their little chores here.
Minimiam is a project of the Japanese photographer Akiko Ida and French photographer Pierre Javelle. They met studying photography at the Paris “Arts Décoratifs” art school. The project has been ongoing since 2002 and was inspired by the married couple’s profession as commercial food photographers.
Miniatures and Food photography both are very niche genres in themselves and are absolute delight to watch if done finesse. But fusion of both genres is certainly something remarkably different and a treat to watch as well.
The figures acquired for each photograph are taken from train model sets which are generally 1/87 scale, the perfect size for exploring lands of donuts or a frothy mix of meringue turned into a winter sledding adventure.
