Seattle-based artist, Christopher Boffoli is famous for the mini food landscapes he creates. The photographer beautifully tranforms food into the picturesque world that tiny people live in. His series made a big splash and is now headed to New York with a solo photography show, "Edible Worlds," which will opened June 21st at Winston Wachter Fine Art in Chelsea through August 24th.
Boffoli had been toying with the imagery concept for many years without much notoriety. But that all changed last year when some of his images were published in Europe and went viral. His work has been published in more than 80 countries and nominated were nominated as finalists for 2012 James Beard Foundation Award in the Humor category
The inspiration for the work came from the strong, culturally recurring theme of visual size disparity which was common in the movies and TV shows he saw as a boy, such as Honey I Shrunk the Kids and The Incredible Shrinking Woman. But it is a theme that goes back to the social satire of the 18th century’s Gulliver’s Travels.
Christopher recently launched a new website for his successful series called Big Appetites. Check out his work below!
