Food as architecture

Love this delicious new series of images from photographer Gary Bryan where everyday foods take on a monumental quality

Bryan's personal project takes perfectly positioned piles of different foods to create images that have a completely transformed sense of scale. The milk and white chocolate above looks like some kind of 60s housing scheme while these wafers (below) resemble a model for a fairly grim civic centre.

In the last shot of the series sugar cubes become ancient ruins


Bryan says there is no CGI involved, just retouching and lighting.

Ah yes...The gourmet version of Lego.

One can achieve so much with a few Chocolate Fingers and a Wagon Wheel.

Gripping, I passed this on to a friend of mine, and he actually bought me lunch because I found this for him, so let me rephrase: Thanks for lunch.

Loved it. The combination between art and chocolate is one that should be displayed more frequently!
