Miniatures of Old Buildings in Philadelphia By Drew Leshko

 There is nothing quite like miniature art to bring big details to light. Drew Leshko is an artist from Philadelphia who has been preserving the history and depth of his city through miniature sculptures. He captures each detail with precision down to every crack, crevice, and slightly skewed sign. His focus remains on parts of the city being affected by rapid changes or gentrification, hoping to memorialize the architectural heritage of his home.

While these buildings may be the approximate size of dollhouses, they’re not for dolls, they're meant for resident Philadelphians, bringing the city’s urban charm to life. Travel through the cultural crypts of Philly with these intricately designed miniatures.
