“Negro Church, South Carolina, 1936”, 2006

from his site:

(these are a) Re-creation of documentary photographs from the 1930’s. While aiming to isolate the sculptural aspects of original photographs taken by Walker Evans, I build miniature models of the churches and dress the sets in order to trick the viewer into believing the imagery is the original photograph, while actually being a studio creation standing a mere 6 inches tall.
