A tiny man on a moped rides along a rocket ice lolly, taken in Glasgow, Scotland, November 2016 In a tiny world where you could be attacked by a pack of gummy bears, giant confectionary isnt always so sweet. Scottish Artist and Photographer David Gilliver created the sugar series based around retro sweets in November 2016 He said: I grew up eating all of the sweets that you see in these photos and so there was a lot of nostalgia involved for me when making this work.It's also a bonus that I got to eat some of it after I had finished each photo-shot, carefully avoiding eating any of the little people!
