Broccoli Lawns and Cupcake Sledding: Photographer Christopher Boffoli Plays With His Food

Friday 10.18.2013 , Posted by

broccoli

Seattle photographer, Christopher Boffoli, is widely known for his series of work called Big Appetites. Using food as a prop in his photographic storytelling, the images show an affection for the miniature and the playful. The work is significantly more evolved than the airplane spoon of dinner that is “coming in for a landing” in a baby’s mouth, but perhaps both share the concept of bridging food and play. The photos create imaginary worlds and alternate realities. It’s a world where broccoli can becomes a lawn and spaghetti can become a car wash. [Read more...]

Corn was once a straightforward crop, but the US industry has seen big changes in recent years. Ethanol and GMOs are both relatively new to the scene, and they are both hot-button issues. Since 1980, the use of corn has increased significantly as a result of renewable energy legislation. Not only are we using more corn, but we are using different strains of corn. In 2013, genetically engineered corn accounted for 90% of the planted crop showing a steep increase from just 25% in 2000. A series of graphs were produced by Flapjack Media to detangle the data. The full graphic is available here. [Read more...]

Stephanie Gonot Fad Diets 1

People will try anything for a miracle weight loss trick. The old tried and true eat wholesome, healthy foods and exercise regularly is too difficult in this fast paced world, so instead we convince ourselves that drinking lemon water with maple syrup and cayenne pepper for ten days will make all of our dreams of turning heads on the beach come true. Maybe if we eat nothing but bacon, sausage, and grapefruit we’ll get that “healthy” body we’ve always wanted- who needs kidneys anyway? LA based photographer Stephanie Gonot had the brilliant idea to create visual representations of several fad diets to put into perspective just how dangerous some of these quick fixes really are.

Fast Food Sandwiches Without A Top Bun Under A High-Resolution Scanner

Sunday 08.18.2013 , Posted by

Jon Feinstein 1

Aside from the chewy deliciousness of bread, it may serve another purpose in the fast food world- concealing the low-grade mystery meat beneath so that we can deem it edible. Photographer Jon Feinstein placed open-faced fast food sandwiches under a high-resolution scanner and surprisingly, they look nothing like the appetizing sandwiches shown on billboards everywhere. Although he does not label where any of the “food” items are from, many are fairly easy to identify and he titles each picture with it’s fat content instead. [Read more...]
