When Metinides left La Prensa in 1997 he stopped taking photographs. A few years later he began to make photographs with his collection of toy ambulances and fire engines, looking into his archive and using his original images as backdrops, to the fantasy disaster narratives he built with his toys, miniature diaramas, constructed on his sofa. This images were featured in Picnic magazine. After that, he continued to explore this world of fiction and reality.
