Usually, when it comes to LEGO® photography, it’s all about the smaller perspective of LEGO Minifigures. However, photographer Domenico Franco has taken a different twist on the theme and given LEGO models a life-sized makeover in his project, “LEGO outside LEGOLAND.”

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be the size of a LEGO Minifigure? This series helps to put that into perspective. I really like this take on Legography and while some of the shots are clearly LEGO models, others take a moment to realise that what you’re looking at has been edited into the photo.

For the LEGO fans, there are some great classic models in there too such as the LL 918 Space Transport and 8860 Car Chassis.

Here’s a look at his photos below and tell us which one’s your favourite in the comments!
