Story by Chad Loucks

Little Rock, AR

After moving back to Little Rock a few years ago, my brother presented me with these miniature wooden cameras saying, “I think you should have these…”

They are sculptures, they are miniatures, they are props. Are they toys? I don’t remember ever seeing these but the name and date on the bottom would indicate that my father made these when I was six.

How can I not remember these? Perhaps some part of me does.

In high school, I became obsessed with photography. I went to school for photography. I’ve made a living as a photographer and as a prop and model maker. To date, I’ve built dozens of miniature worlds.

Thanks, Dad!
