This Artist Creates Tiny Anti-Fracking Scenes with Vintage Figurines and Postcards

See the Work of Brandi Merolla on Grist

New York state-based photographer (and DCS’s own) Brandi Merolla was trying to figure out her next project when she looked around her house. Victorian prints, tiny charms, paintings, vintage postcards, and figurines she collected throughout the years suddenly stood out in ways they hadn’t before. So she used her collection to illustrate something else close to home: fracking. In “Scenes from the Attic”, Merolla tackles a big controversy with tiny art.
