Artist Michael Paul Smith created a 1950s utopian town out of miniatures based on stories and moments from his childhood. When photographs of the town, Elgin Park, went viral, Smith, a self-proclaimed recluse, had to work through coming to terms with his fame. In this short from Animal East, the modelmaker talks about his life and how he’s coped and connected with fans of his work.
