Big Appetites (2003-present) is a a series of fine art photographs that features tiny, meticulously hand-painted figures photographed against real food environments.
The series was inspired by a childhood fascination with miniatures, a frequent theme in cinema, advertising and television. The photographs are also intended to offer criticism of America’s sometimes dysfunctional relationship with food; with overconsumption, portion sizes and food spectatorship. Big Appetites photographs have been published in more than 100 countries around the world. Fine art prints from the series can be found in galleries and private collections in the US, Canada, Europe and Asia. [Official Website][Book]
