Artist can be real contrarians. Consider Carl Warner, a London-based photographer. He takes perfectly good food and then turns it into Foodscapes.
The Foodscape is a scene that is put together by taking different kinds of food and manipulating them to create a wonderful three dimensional scene. He then photographs the scenes, which are used for advertising in European and food industry campaigns.
Can you tell what some of the ingredients are in these pictures?
“I do not consider my work to be a waste of food as I am creating something which brings a bit of joy to the world and is used to encourage healthy eating. The fact that it is not eaten does not mean it hasn't been put to good use[.]”
“I use very classical composition techniques which are used in painting. This helps the viewer to believe that it is a real scene as they feel comfortable in the traditional aspects of landscape composition[.]" -Warner
“I could shoot the images in one shot but the food in the foreground would have perished by the time you have finished the background[.]"
