Brazilian photographer Vanessa Dualib has a talent for seeing your basic, everyday food as more than first meets the eye. In her project, entitled Brincando Com a Comida (Playing With Food), everything from potatoes to pea pods are transformed into playful animal creations. Dualib has an energy for life and she says this project is a tribute to three of her favorite things: life, food, and photography.
Vanessa Dualib Food Creatures
The combination of her creative vision, googly eyes, and some simple carving techniques will definitely bring a smile to your face. Every piece is totally unique and often paired with imaginative stories, funny quotes, and encouraging phrases that give the food sculptures a life of their own. Dualib even names some of the characters, including her sweet potato dinosaur, Apotatosaurus Dulcis, an adorable red Waspberry, and the eight-legged Potatoctapus. Each photo is not just a clever sculpture, but also a little adventure into Dualib's cheerful imagination!
