You may never peel an orange in the same way again!
Photographer Christopher Boffoli has created a series of photographs that turn the everyday into a miniature (or gigantic, depending on your perspective) world. The Big Appetites series plays on our perception of scale – using food to set the scene, Boffoli has set up tiny figurines of people doing everyday things. Rigatoni becomes a pipeline factory and a squashed blackberry is a crime-scene.
Kids will appreciate the purely imaginative aspect of each image (and may start looking at their dinner plate with new curiosity!). Adults will also enjoy the witty captions – my favourite is Gary, the hotdog ‘Mustard Technician’, for which the caption reads “Gary always used too much mustard. But no one could say so. It was a union thing” – brilliant!
