Food Photographer Beth Galton and Food Stylist Charlotte Omnès collaborated for the series ‘Cut Food’. We can’t decide if looking at the pictures makes us sick or hungry but it is definetely a fun idea to provide a peek at food in a way that defies gravity- slicing it right down the middle in whatever container it’s normally found in.The two got the idea for the series after a commissioned job that had them cutting a burrito in half for a photo shoot.

Christopher Boffoli does what was strictly forbidden when I was a child; he is playing with food. His miniature men explore eatables out of a new, unknown perspective. Thus an applecake becomes a building site, noodles become a viewing platform and a cornet is reconstructed to a tent. A while ago we´ve already introducedChristopher Boffoli´s work and couldn´t help but wonder what happened in the world of miniature people since.
In this fun series of painted objects named ‘It’s not what it seems’, artist Hikaru Cho transforms common foods with deftly applied acrylic paints into something else. A banana gets to look like a cucumber, a tomato becomes a mandarine and even an egg is made into an eggplant. So better be careful when picking up fruits next time, when Hikaru Cho had a hand you might not get what you expected.
We just received the latest artworks of Alexander Kent who we featured before on iGNANT. As we became real fans of his work we were quite excited to take a look at his latest projects.
Kent is a master of conceptual still lifes, constantly creating strong visuals and attractive compositions for various clients. As he tells us, 2013 was all about ‘visually wrong rainbows, methods of illumination, dali rooms and impossible blades’.

By dropping different foods manually onto bendable plates, Esther Lobo created her series ‘Rorschach’. Inspired by the well known psychological Rorschach test she creates a mosaic of colorful patterns made of ice cream, tomato sauce and many other foods.
Folding the plates in the middle after adding a certain food she followed the same method used to create the tests obtaining symmetrical spots. By placing the corresponding food packaging over each stain she adds dimension and at the same time provides one point to attract the attention, in competition with the spots as background. ‘I created each picture as a game of shape, texture and color itself, but always thinking of their position in the final composition, trying to balance it.’
So what do you see? Maybe butterflies, bears or….
