Alien landscapes made from processed foods

If you loved the animated film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and its sequel (which totally brought me to tears!), you’re going to love this real life version. Miniature version, that is. Processed Views is a collaborative photo series by photographers Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman, in which they used processed foods like French fries, bacon, Fruit Loops, chicken skin, sugar, and corn flakes to create edible landscapes.

The series was inspired by the works of Carleton Watkins, whose photos captured the beauty and wonder of the then newly-explored American West.

Beautiful as these vistas may be, they carry a dark message for us to heed. The photographers talk about the theme on their website, ‘As we move further away from the natural sources of our food, we head into uncharted territory rife with unintended consequences for the environment and for our health’.
