FOODSCAPESThe british photographer Carl Warner created a series of phtos usingonly food to make the cenary.The word “foodscapes” (union of the words food and landscape)show underwater caves, forests, beaches on sunset and evenwaterfalls, using fruits, vegetables, cheese, cold meat, pasta, amongother.
In this forest, trees are made of brocolis, with peas hangedand the highways are paved with cumin. The grass is made oherbs and the mountains, of bread. Clouds made ofcauliflower, decorate the sky
The photgrapher tells that he is known in theneighborhood of his house, in Kent, England, forpassing hours in th emarket looking for the bestbrocolis or the best pepper to “compose” hiscenaries.To gain depth, the photos are taken on tables with1,2 x 2,4 meters square. Besides, they areregistrated in”layers”, to avoid that the foodshrivels before the picture is taken.
The edible ingredients in this rural scene of italian inspirationinclude a small car made of lasagna slices, fields of pasta, andclouds of mozzarela. Trees of pepper, parsley and basilcomplete the scene, at the bottom, a small village of cheese.
