At first glance, this looks like a wooded landscape, with towering hills in the background. However look a little more closely and you will see that the trees are broccoli and the hills are baked potatoes. In fact everything you can see in the photograph is made of food!
The picture is an example of the work of Carl Warner, a photographer who works in London, and who made made something of a speciality of these food landscapes or 'foodscapes.' In recent years he has been commissioned by many advertising agencies throughout Europe to produce his distinctive images for clients in the food industry.
Carl says "I tend to draw a very conventional landscape [first] as I need to fool the viewer into thinking it is a real scene at first glance. It is the realisation of what the real ingredients are that brings a smile, and for me that's the best part."
Each scene is photographed in layers from foreground to background. The process is very time consuming, and so the food quickly wilts under the lights.
