The very first one to work with the concept of shooting miniatures into real life sets was London based artist Slinkachu. Since then, we have sen it in print campaigns (Ben & Jerry’s in the NY subways right now) and plenty of other media. A tad different but in the same vein, this series, called Big Appetites by artist Christopher Boffoli presents miniature 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.”
The photographs are being exhibited at Winston Wächter Fine Art NYC until 24th of August.
