Title: Food Presentations

FOODSCAPES The British Photgrapher Carl
Warner created a series of landscape images
utilizing basic food ingredients found in a
typical Kitchen. The images "foodscapes" (made
up of the words Food and Landscapes) show scenes
including, Caverns, Submarines, Forests, Beaches
etc. using fruits, Legumes, Cheeses, Pastas,
Breads among others.
The Forest of Dean or the Forest of Greens? The
road is paved with cumin, peas hang from broccoli
trees and cauliflower clouds adorn the sky with
bread for mountains.
The photographer, is known in his neighborhood
of Kent in England, as he spends hours in stores
looking for the best pieces of brocoli, peppers,
fruits etc. to compose the landscape scenes.
To achieve depth, To give a realistic
three-dimensional feel to the photographs, each
still life is composed on a table measuring 8ft
by 4ft. The foreground is only about 2ft across.
In addition, they are taken in stages so the
fresh foods do not get wilted or stale before the
photo is finished.
Edible ingredients in this Italian-inspired
rural scene include a lasagna cart, fields of
pasta, a pine nut wall, mozzarella clouds, trees
of peppers and chilies and a parmesan village.
I like to the way small aspects of nature
look a lot like the larger counterparts. ", says
Carl Warner. He also confeses that up to
now, he has not been able to convince his four
kids to eat their vegetables. At least I
cannot say that they enjoy eating fruits and
vegetables as much as I do, says Carl.
This Cavern is made with fruits of the sea. The
rocks are made of bread, but, the ones on the
bottom of the sea are cauliflower. To give the
dimension of depth, the landscape is on a 3x3
foot table.
Rice, coconuts, several grains, and a sky made
of cabbage make up this pastoral scene.
This one is made from lettuce leaves, rocks of
sweet and red potatoes, canyon walls made of
bread, and the sky of red cabbage...
This reddish sea on this beach scene at
sunset is made up of salmon filets. The rocks are
of potatoes and bread. And the small boat made of
a green pea pod complete the scene.
Several types of Grains and Mushrooms.
This plate makes the perfect the rainbow
behind a forest made up of legumes and potatoes.
Houses made of cheese, crates and baskets made
of various pastas. The street is made up of
legumes, and grains.
This Italian kitchen has many vegetables
and pastas. The houses seen through the window
are made of cheese.
At first sight, its hard to notice that the
mountains are made up of bread...
The creativity is impresive balloons made
of fruit and legumes, trees of broccoli, rocks
of poatoes, fields of corn and peppers, and a
town made of cheese with a carrot tower... Wow!
In this mountain scene, bread sticks and cured
ham slices are transformed into a carriage to be
pushed down a path made of salami bordered by
trees made bacon.
In this scene, the main components are Ham for
the sky, mountains and the river Bread for
rocks Bread sticks for the house And Salami
for its roof.
A winter landscape for carnivores Parma ham
and breadsticks are fashioned into a sled which
is pulled across a snow-covered road made from a
selection of cold meats. While the trees are
made up of wrapped bacon, and the house in the
background is of breadsticks and more cold cuts.
Finally, this thinking man is made up of
various legumes including broccoli, red cabbage,
green peppers and a cucumber for the nose. The
thought balloons are made up of potatoes.
The photographs will be used for a and
advertisement campaign for supermarket chain in
England. Warner also plans to put these
together in a coffee table book to promote
healthy eating for children. Carls Website is

This campaign should be a great success as
anyone that sees these impressive foodscapes
yearns for all the delicious foods pictured in
this wonderful exhibition...
