  • Kim Leuenberger is a model car photographer known for her unique portrayal of miniature cars in different settings. Based in Switzerland, Leuenberger has been photographing toy cars for three years. It all started when she was bored at home and decided to take photos of her little van and a Paddington toy in her garden. She posted these pictures online and received an overwhelming positive response, which motivated her to start a series called Traveling Car Adventures. Since then, Leuenberger has traveled across Europe, collecting more toy cars along the way and capturing their adventures in various countries. She has gained a following of around 34,000 fans on Instagram and has even sold some of her best pictures. Leuenberger studied photography at London's University of the Arts and hopes to pursue a career in commercial and editorial photography, with a focus on storytelling through her images. In the meantime, she continues to expand her collection of toy cars by buying them at flea markets like London's Portobello Road.

  • She started with her first camera at age 19. It was a sunny Sunday, and I was really bored at home.
  • Like I say, I live in a place where there are more cows than inhabitants.
  • So I just took all the things I had in my room.
  • And I took this little van I had.
  • I was receiving it like six months ago, like from my parents.
  • And I took a little Paddington there, and I started putting it in scene in my garden.
  • So that's how it started.
  • Leuenberger posted her first pictures on the internet.
  • The positive reaction was overwhelming.
  • Encouraged by the praise, she began another series, Traveling Car Adventures.
  • Since then, the toys have accompanied her all across Europe.
  • To Italy, Her native Switzerland, and Greece.
  • Wherever I traveled, I found more of those cars.
  • So I started buying more wherever I went.
  • I think the second one was a Vespa that I bought in Italy.
  • Then I bought this yellow Beetle in Spain.
  • And wherever I went, I got new ones.
  • Leuenberger posted the images on social networks, including Instagram.
  • She's now got around 34,000 fans, and she's made some money by selling her best pictures.
  • Leuenberger studied photography here at London's University of the Arts.
  • She's hoping to make a career of it.
  • I would like to work in commercial photography, editorial, work for cover for like bands and books cover, and also work for magazines and things like that.

  • She buys the cars at flea markets like this one on London's Portobello Road.
  • Minis and Beetles and other classic models.
  • She always knows exactly what she's looking for.
  • The face, mostly.
  • The face of the car, that it looks to be photogenic in a way.
  • So some are orange, some are more photogenic.
  • I take it and I look at it from different angles.
  • I like to shoot them from the back as well.
  • And if they look nice from a certain angle in the back, then it works as well.
  • Leuenberger now has more than 50 cars in her collection.
  • As well as photographing them, finding and collecting them has become a hobby in its own right.
  • When she travels, she often has several dozen miniature cars in her suitcase.
  • There's always this game I like to play.
  • It's like, how did the car get there?
  • The first look is like, is it real, is it not?
  • And that's what I want to play with most of the time.
  • I think most of the people tell me that it makes them happy, so that's what makes me carry on with this project.
  • Kim Leuenberger has become a Londoner.
  • The city provides the backdrops for many of her pictures.
  • She shoots the cars at their own level or from below.
  • The process always arouses the curiosity of passers-by.
  • I sometimes take them kneeling on the ground or lying on the ground and I get a few weird looks when I do that.
  • When I'm really flat on the ground and people ask me if I'm okay or if I have something wrong, I'm like, no, I'm just taking a picture of a little car.
  • In her bid to create the perfect images, Kim Leuenberger will have to put up with the stares for a while longer.
  • She plans to continue her Travelling Cars Adventures series and she hopes to publish a coffee table book showcasing her best photos very soon.
