Are you looking at the poster of a new Bungie-developed game? A film by Neill Blomkamp? Or Neill Armstrong himself? Nope. Reddit user el_chivo recently posted up pictures by one of his friends of a project that’s incredibly simple, and incredibly creative.
If you’re a sci-fi geek like me, you’ll appreciate the work this photographer does. Titled ALES Protocol, this is a project that documents the life of a little astronaut discovering our big world. As his adventure continues, we’re treated with some pretty neat pictures of him that take us back to a style reminiscent of sci-fi epics like Elysium and Halo.
With the scale of the figure so small in comparison to the grass and rocks in the ground its on, the photo literally almost looks like it’s from a different planet. This was achieved through some very well done tilt-shift photography, and the post-processing done afterwards is just the right amount to turn these pictures into something cinematic and consistent.
