Miniature People Playing with Food by Christopher Boffoli

Christopher Boffoli is the Seattle-based photographer with a huge obsession with tiny people. Using everyday foods and miniature model figures, he presents his latest series “Big Appetites”– a visual parody and mock commentary on the American culture of over-consumption. The common cultural theme of disproportionate people goes as far back as Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, if not earlier, and harkens to childhood fantasies and make-believe tales. “I chose food as a backdrop because it is a constant,” declared Boffoli. “People see a striking image of food and are immediately drawn in because it is something familiar.”
