A Feast for the Eyes

London-based photographer Carl Warner uses food as the medium for his still-life photography landscape series.

The detailed and intricate set of scenes built entirely from cubed fruits and vegetables, loaves of bread, fresh fish, and meats are just a selection of the edibles integrated into each setting.

Heaps of crusty bread are reinterpreted as mountain-scapes, and spaghetti strands assume the form of a river’s tide.

Warner and his team meticulously assemble the culinary elements piece by piece, creating interpretations of renowned architectural structures, like the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China.

Human figures ranging from gondola drivers to cowboys, and vistas of sweeping vast deserts to a tiny Tuscan marketplace.

“There are many, many food things that I want to do: Thai floating markets, I’d like to make Venice out of pasta. There is no end to it really. My work brings a smile to people’s faces. It’s nice for people to think, if this man can do this with the contents of his fridge, then what else can we do?” -Carl Warner
