Food for Thought


What do you see??  How was this picture photographed?


What do you see if this photo? 


So what or how is he doing his photography?  What if I told you that all of his props are food.  The above picture where it shows him working is entirely made out of meat.  In fact it is mostly bacon.

The photographer/artist is Carl Warner and he has found a unique way to make food into art that will last a long time.  It takes several days to prepare for a shoot and then a morning at the market to buy all of the fresh ingredients.  Most of his art has to be done in one to two days top, otherwise it spoils. 

Now go back to the top two pictures and see if you can guess what foods he used to create the props for his photos?  Can you think of other foods that he could have used?  What foods would you think would be the most versatile?


By the way, here is the finished "meat" photo.

  1. I like these drawings, although when I look at them they make me hungry. In the beech photo the hamburgers on the rock with lettuce is pretty neat and the end of watermellon or a cantelop on the water as a boat.I woould do that, but it would make me hungry while I was making it, then I would get distacted by eating my food.

  25. i like how everything is made of food that is my type of art right there and the food flows and works with the picture its not force

  26. food is definitely always good.This art seems pretty cool, not really something i would wanna do. I like to eat food not make art out of it.

  27. Food may not be the best medium, with the fact that it rots, but I think it might be a fun medium to use; What other type of artwork can you eat afterwords?

  28. While making this artwork I would be tempted to eat the props. A great vegetable to use for this would probably be broccoli. It reminds me of mini trees. Overall its pretty amazing.

  29. Ahah now this sounds like something I would definitely do this. I mean it's food art! who doesn't love food. So this is a pretty amazing piece of art to me,

  30. These look really cool, and kinda remind me of clay figures or stop motion animation. I think that it is a waste of food though. It's not like he can eat it, since it has been out for days and is probably harboring a lot of bad bacteria. It would be gross having to smell all the food, especially the meat. It would also be gross to clean up.
