If you were a donut, what kind would you be? As part of his collaboration with advertising agency The Marlin Network, St. Louis-based photographer Brandon Voges asks that probing question. With help from Strange Donuts, he paired human faces with the breakfast food, composing diptychs that draw parallels between flesh and frosting, sprinkles and freckles. Blood trickling down a fighter’s nose is equated with oozing jelly, wisdom lines with the crevices of a glazed fritter.
Bringing whole new meaning to the phrase “you are what you eat,” Voges invites us to take ourselves a little less seriously, to allow our identities to relax into a world of sugary confections. The lifestyle photographer created the series of images, titled Donut Doubles, for invitation to a breakfast event put on by the National Restaurant Association.
