Insane Food Photography That Will Blow Your Mind!
Insane Food Photography That Will Blow Your Mind!
On average, British citizens spend 5.9-hours a week in the kitchen. Around 290-hours a year. 3-years in a lifetime. But, how creative are we in the kitchen?
There is no denying that good food is pretty delicious. But what we all forget is that it can be beautiful too. Think of it this way, when was the last time you say and looked at the food you had cooked or had cooked for you? We all tend to jump straight into our dishes, tucking into the food and savouring all the flavours. However, we need to remember that food can be a treat for the eyes as well as for the taste-buds.
With bold colours, amazing textures and a whole host of different ways to present it, we think that the time has come to get creative with food. So, to give you a touch of inspiration for your next creation, we have put together some of these fantastic artists and the artistic creations they have managed to make with food alone.
Foodscapes by Carl Warner
Now, this may not be something that you can create at home, but we felt that we couldn’t have a creative food rundown without having Carl Warner feature in it at some point. This amazingly talented artist takes food and transforms it into a work of art. Landscapes and landmarks from around the world, all using images of food in a variety of forms. These pictures are not only great fun, but they also make us feel a little bit hungry too.

Creative High-Speed Photography by Egor N
Here is some high-speed photography at it’s best. Egor N creates unimaginably beautiful images with the, seemingly banal, cup, saucer and milk. He contrasts light and dark components in order to capture incredible, aesthetic pieces that make you wonder what you are missing with our ‘normal-speed’ eyes.
Simplistic Food by Mittongtare Studio
Photographer and food appreciator Pornchai Mittongtare is well known for taking a variety of foods and capturing their simplistic beauty in a photograph. Every element of his images are immaculately placed and there is something truly inspiring that these fantastic images portray. Pornchai achieves the incredible feeling that you are there in the same room as the pieces (or at least, you are desperate to be there).
Modernist Cooking by Nathan Myhrvold
We hear Nathan Myhrvold talking about re-imagining food and merging cooking and science into one new concept at a TED Talk conference back in 2011. Nathan brings new questions to the table, such as “why are woks the shape they are?” or “can we cook a burger to perfection?”. In his book, his passion for science, cooking and photography stand out above all but always accompanied by creativity. In this series of photographs, you can really appreciate the scientific side of an ingredient and the processes involved. When you are done here, make sure you check out all their images, there are some mind-boggling beauties in there.
