Big Appetites

Tiny people in a world of big food. We love this surreal take on the world of food photography.  Big Appetites is a series of fine art photographs by Christopher Boffoli that have been exhibited all over the globe; as well as a coffee table book by the same name.
“The series presents tiny, meticulously detailed figures posed in real food environments, referencing both a cultural fascination with tiny things as well as an American enthusiasm for excess, especially in the realm of food.”
Playful yet political, the works are visual parables that warn against excess and mindless consumption of the American diet.
