I love these photos by Matthew Carden with little people figurines depicted living and working among different foods. Carden is a commercial food photographer and married to a chef. I can’t explain the work much better than what’s on the site, so check out the description below.
“Carden sets out in his art work to make viewers more aware of what they eat and to simply think about food as an integral part of our world. His photographs juxtapose figures with seemingly colossal broccoli, macaroons, chicken wings and the like, and speak of abundance and the ultimate waste produced on a daily basis in our land of plenty. Despite looming issues, the blurry, dreamy quality of Carden’s work allows the viewer a whimsical space to enjoy the pure pleasures of food.

Don’t you just love the sun dried apricots?

Hello,
I love your blog (and your stores and catalog)!! Such great clothes and creativity! I thought you might like to know about the really unusual art that my husband and I create……magical fairy furniture, houses and curious characters, all made from nature (flowers, twigs, leaves, moss, pods, etc.) Our pieces are very different and really beautiful. Thought you might like to post something about our work on your blog. I think your readers would love it!! Thank you for all the great inspiration!!
