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. Styled by Chef Iain Graham and set designer Anna Lomax, each image is an intricate science experiment-turned recipe with fully working circuits. Everything was shot in camera, with a bit of work from retoucher Joe Currie—we imagine things may have gotten a bit messy—as fun things often do.
