Matthew Albanese's fake landscapes

Matthew Albanese builds miniatures of extremely realistic looking natural landscapes using surprising materials. At first glance, they appear to be real photographs of natural phenomenons, but for example, the fierce tornado above was created using “steel wool, cotton, ground parsley and moss.” I also like his Martian surface built from “12 pounds paprika, cinnamon, nutmeg, chili powder and charcoal.” Who knew Mars could be so spicy delicious?
