A Lesson on Playing w/your Food

Meet Carl Warner, the photographer and artist behind Foodscapes – a self-taught, awe-inspiring art form constructed entirely out of food.

When Carl looks at food he see possibilities. To him, broccoli are miniature trees that can create vast forests of connected treetops. To him, Italian parmesan cheese wheels are rugged, plunging cliffs. To him, smoked salmon is the lapping water at sunset reflecting the blazing colors of the sky. In a sense, he’s just a big kid playing with his food, a man making “glorified flower arrangements”. Yet, he’s more than that. He’s an artist. An artist that makes you think about food and interact with food on a different level, on a level that captures our fondness for illusions and brain teasers and fairy tales all at once.
