Lesbians, Vegetarians, Atheists, and Feminists. If you're not scared off by now, stay and read a few more things I have to say.

Photographer Carl Warner has decided to combine the childhood art of playing with your food, photography, and photoshop to create quaint and edible landscapes.

Apparently, I am the last person to find out about these super cool creations, as he began to make this type of artwork a few years ago.

But, maybe you're even further behind in that tiny niche of food art then I am, and these will be brand new and fascinating for you.

The only thing that would make his artwork cooler is if he only used vegetarian and organic ingredients. (He does just this opposite in a few pictures: making landscapes primarily consisting of deli meats.)

The other downside to this medium? It makes you wonder about the opulence and excess of those of us who live in the Western hemisphere. Is it really fair to be using food as art when there are people who are malnourished? (And, yes, this applies to you, preschoolers, and your macaroni art. Don't think you get let off the hook.)

However, if you're not concerned about the moral implications, you could go and check out more of his work on his website, if you feel so inclined.


  1. I wonder how much time goes into something like this? I imagine they could take an extraordinary amount of time to complete.

  2. Knowing how long it takes for Shinobi to complete architectural models, I am imagining it is incredibly time consuming. But, I imagine there must be an element of excitement to it, as well - watching everything come together and begin to transform into something else.
