• New edible miniatures Christopher Boffoli
The artist from Seattle Christopher Boffoli has created a new series of thumbnails for the "disproportionate". Its purpose - to showcase American culture of excessive food consumption, using figures and real food.
"I chose to eat in the background, because it is something that we see all the time, every day", - said Christopher. "People see food in an unusual manner, and immediately notice that this is something familiar.
"Sawmill green beans"
"As an American, I also think that my choice from the point of view of the public is something strange and often causes negative attitude in relation to food. I mean that my work is mostly humorous character, and most of the audience will react to it appropriately.
"CSI: Kill blackberry"
Christopher creates his work, so that the humor was at the center of each image, made them. "Each scene has its own personality and the idea", - said Christopher. But most of all, I signed them, then the concept becomes more complete and funny.
"Fire brigade on pepperoni"
While working on his project since 2006, Christopher drew inspiration from a book about Lilliput - "Gulliver's Travels". "The creation of each scene begins from the selection of food, I take it, that is in season at the farmer's market, taking into account the fact that I did not use it before.
"These pictures look simple, but the most difficult - is to configure the hardware and the image is", - said Christopher. "I often try to do a couple of scenes for a few hours. Some do not take a long time, others vice versa. I work with lighting and depth of field. There is a corner in my studio, I usually use for this project.
"We have a lot in Seattle cloudy days, so I try to use every wonderful, sunny day.
