If you’re at all interested in the question of animal rights, ethics, and morality, you’ve probably come across the topic of animals in the food industry. I try to follow material about humans’ level of visual experience of the food they consume, and I’ve been researching a handful of artists who explore this topic. I was instantly fascinated by Danish artist Per Johansen‘s Mæt (eng. Full) pictures. Such beautiful, gorgeously lit still life photographs; and I love that I can say that even though the subject is plastic bottles packed glutinously full of food and animal products.

Gourmet Mouse Traps



Cheddar in the mouse trap? Please, this is New York! Photographer Davide Luciano teamed up with food stylist Claudia Ficca to create a series of gourmand mini-platters for the gourmet mouse—and for us, of course.

Watch Spices Explode in Perfect Sync to Music

A delight for the senses, this soothing and stunning ‘audio visual installation’ crafted in collaboration with DJ/Producer MJ Cole, filmmaker Chris Cairns and creative agency Grey London, pleases sight, sound, and taste. Shot for Schwartz and their new product, Flavour Shots—ready-to-go herb/spice/oil blends—participating creatives put together a mesmerizing ‘sonic flavourscape’ in which tons of peppercorns, cardamom, turmeric, paprika, cumin seeds, ginger, chili and coriander were set to explode in perfect sync with Cole’s musical composition. Working with Machine Shop, a group of pyrotechnic designers, each spice explosion and its corresponding note or chord seamlessly blends into a beautiful display that indeed brings to life ‘the sound of taste.’

Some foods—in theory—can conduct and produce electricity. UK-based photographer Catherine Losing was curious to find out, teaming up with the guys behind the new food publication The Gourmand to produce some rather quirky and unconventional food images in her recent series The Serpent That Ate Its Own Tail.

Photo du jour: Merry Knitmas!

David Sykes

What better way to say Merry Christmas than with London-based photographer David Sykes’ Knitmas Dinner. This delightful dinner is the latest addition to his series Faux Food in which he creates the nation’s favorite dishes out of everyday objects. Crafted in collaboration with model maker Jessica Dance and made entirely out of wool, Sykes says the piece is a nod to the “unwanted woolly jumpers from grannies at Christmas time.”

Love in a Time of Hunger (Spotlight)

Anna Williams

In 2010, NYC-based photographer Anna Williams launched The Voracity, a collaborative project and online publication exploring themes of hunger, consumption and beauty. Each series is as unique as it is visually stunning and employs a mix of styles and techniques. How to Shoot a Wolf, issue 5 in The Voracity archive, draws inspiration from a period of time during World War II when food was anything but abundant. While magazines at the time tackled ways to approach the new reality of food rationing a la making do with less, M.F.K. Fisher published ‘How to Cook a Wolf,’ a soulful guide to deeper nourishment amidst the trying times—’how to be cheerful through starving’ and ‘how to comfort sorrow,’ among some of her tips.

Dead Sea Creatures Photographed to Look Alive for Eric Ripert’s ‘On The Line’ Cookbook


There’s certainly something fishy about these images by NYC-based photo team Shimon and Tammar and it’s that these sea creatures are already dead! Shot for Eric Ripert’s cookbook On The Line, Shimon and Tammar wanted to shoot something dynamic and original while showing the freshness of the fish that Eric had been using in his dishes. They didn’t want to shoot a conventional-styled beauty still life that would look artificial. At the time they were shooting dancers and liquids using high-speed flashes, and decided to try a similar technique on the fish to create the illusion that the fish were alive and swimming.
