Photographer Carl Warner painstakingly captures all forms of food in a series of still life’s with edible ingredients he raided from his kitchen cupboards to design a series of dreamy landscapes and homey domestic scenes that appear scrumptiously good enough to eat. Take a close look at this dusk scene and you’ll discover it’s good enough to eat — the pebbles and rocks are potatoes and soda bread, while the red sky at night and sea are entirely formed of strips of salmon.
The resourceful and ingenious series requires numerous shots — Carl first sketches out a traditional landscape scene before introducing the food. Each scene is then captured in separate layers to prevent the food from wilting. He then uses computer technology to combine them into a single final print.
To give a realistic 3-D feel to the photos, each still life is composed on an 8 foot by 4 foot table. The foreground is only about 2 feet across.
