I have recently come across the eclectic work of HenryHargreaves. While he has a background in fashion and art photography—it was his unusual and quirky take on food still life that caught my attention.

For instance, take this mural of Marilyn Monroe, created from…toast. :)
Or this Old English alphabet chart made from America’s number one obsession…bacon!

As a fellow food photographer, his take on repurposing food into a different form of art is provocative and does what I love about photography—sparks conversations.
