Switzerland-based photographers Jojakim Cortis and Adrain Sonderegger, who run the website Ohnetitel, have created impressive miniature models to recapture the most iconic and expensive photographs of the world’s historical events.

The ongoing project started in 2012 when they first chose to recreate the US$4 million image of Andrea Gursky’s ‘Rhein II’, using paper, cotton balls, and everyday items to recreate the scene.

The duo then went on to replicate other iconic scenes and events, such as the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center, the atomic booming of Nagasaki, and the last image of Titanic before it sunk.

Each of these miniature projects would take days or up to a few weeks to be completed.
