Decaying Food Art by Klaus Pichler

This unusual decaying food art was created by photographer, Klaus Pichler. Based in Vienna, Klaus has on been working on a set of images entitled ‘One Third‘, which is a collection of varied food (even the octopus below) shown in different stages of decay. I really like the octopus image, as the outside looks like some some of green plastic bag or something. My favourite, though, is the colourful ice cream photo near the end of the post…

What is ‘One Third’? According to a UN study one third of the world’s food goes to waste – the largest part thereof in the industrialized nations of the global north. Equally, 925 million people around the world are threatened by starvation. The series ‘One Third’ describes the connection between individual wastage of food and globalized food production. Rotting food, arranged into elaborate still life’s, portrays an abstract picture of the wastage of food whilst the accompanying texts take a more in depth look at the roots of this issue [read more].

Rainbow Food Photographs by Henry Hargreaves

These stark and colourful rainbow food photographs was taken by talented photographer, Henry Hargreaves. The food shown here gives me a mixture of feelings—yeah, I’d eat the icecream and the pancakes maybe, but not the burger! These are not ‘food as such’ anyway, as they were prepared [SEE MORE HERE].
