What do you do when you’ve had a bad day at work? Do you complain to a friend, vent online or meditate? Instead of taking the usual routes, Derrick Lin, a brand strategist at an advertising firm in Columbus, Ohio, makes portraits of tiny people that depict moments of agency life.
"Perspectives can change how we feel about things — things don’t always seem so negative when we look at them in a positive and humorous light"
With just an iPhone, a desk lamp, mini figures picked up from toy stores and co-workers who volunteer as his models, Derrick shines a light on the minor, mundane or annoying moments at work and turns them into something much more delightful, meaningful and beautiful.
