Delish! Meat stuffed into plastic containers and bottles

‘Mæt’ will either make you hungry or turn vegan. This photo series by Danish photographer Per Johansen explores ‘animal rights, over-consumption, and ethics in the meat industry’. Johansen used plastic bottles and containers as metaphors for the human stomach then stuffed each one with animal products such as chicken, eel, sausage, liver, and fish.

‘At first glance, the viewer is drawn by something seemingly aesthetic in perfect harmony’, reads the website, ‘like sausage, chicken and fish, but if you take a closer look, the motifs are marked by something decadent, disgusting and incarcerated’.
