Fake Food Photos Made with Random Household Things

Comment

fakefoodphotosfeat

Kristina Lechner of Kalamazoo, Michigan, is a fake-food photographer (not to be confused with a fake food-photographer). Her project Food Not Food is a series of tasty photos in which everything in the frame is something inedible that was found around the house.

Sponges, erasers, bubble wrap, string, Q-Tips — these things and more are arranged in clever ways that make them look like popular dishes and desserts.
