Christopher Boffoli is a self-taught Seattle-based photographer, writer, artist and filmmaker and the creative genius behind the Big Appetites series. His delightful collection of miniature food dioramas definitely evokes memories of Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels.
It is easy to see why his work with food and tiny toys has such universal appeal. There is a child in all of us and many of us also enjoy food. The incongruous mix of small people with food and drink has even led one person to admit, “I wish I could live in a world with oversized patisserie.”
It is only an imaginary world where food overwhelms the citizens but it is one which is full of humorous references to our real world, both visually and in the witty text which accompanies each perfectly composed photograph. This is story telling at its best!
“Jerome finally got over his Peter Pan syndrome and popped the question.”
Christopher Boffoli’s new book will be out later this year so watch out for it in your local bookstore. It promises to be a wonderful book for all to enjoy.
