The work of Montreal-based Mathieu Lévesque is, quite simply, a masterclass in food photography. We are in awe of Lévesque’s ability to apply his own creative vision to everything he (re)touches. His attention to detail is remarkable. And the wit and whimsy present in so much of his work elevates it to the next level. We are engaged on many levels by his work… inspired, envious and hungry!

When it comes to an art medium we can really sink our teeth into, food is near the top of our list. After all, few things bring people together like food. It’s relatable, familiar, often comforting, and let’s face it, essential to our very being. Philadelphia-based photographer Dominic Episcopo invites viewers to “Meat America” through this engaging and polarizing series of photographs of, well, meat — carved, molded, manipulated — to look like American icons. Episcopo describes the project as “an eye-opening and artery-closing tour of America’s spirit of entrepreneurship, rebellion and positivity.” From Elvis, to Lincoln, to the Liberty Bell as subjects, Episcopo’s carnivorous wit shines through. And his photography skills are not too shabby either. Patriotic protein aside, Episcopo’s sense of composition and lighting is stellar. A less skilled photographer would not have pulled this off so well. Episcopo’s book available here.

Our love of food here at Barbour is no secret. In fact, it’s a requirement. So we pose the question, is there anything better than this project? Actually initiated by the 8-year-old son of New York City area-based writer/designer/blogger Chris Durso, The Foodnited States of America is a deliciously terrific tour of the U.S. Sure, there have been plenty of food-geography mashups (here and here), but this one is different. The “punny” play on words sells it, and the superb execution knocks it out of the park. Durso rolls out states one-by-one on his Instagram page (hashtag #foodnitedstates), and he’s just passed the halfway mark. This is one to watch, folks. Sampling below, but be sure to head over to Durso’s Instagram for more.

This is the time of year when people the world over carve pumpkins. But for UK-based photographer Ilian Iliev, carving produce is a practice that takes place all year long. Iliev is a food photographer by trade, having dabbled in journalistic photography at the start of his career, and eventually making his way into commercial photography. His artistic aspirations and love of food led him to this terrific project… a series of creative food carvings. Not only are his carvings beautifully detailed, but Iliev’s photography skills really shine. Well done!

We always appreciate inventive and surprising typography, and this is a great example by South African designer/illustrator Vus Ngxande. Handcrafted typography is a fantastic contrast to computer-generated graphics, and Ngxande’s execution works very well for this community outreach arm of South African retail giant Woolworths. Being the sole imagery in this 48-page booklet, the vibrant typography really pops. Well done.

We must admit we have a soft spot for food sculptures (here, here and here). Romanian artist/photographer Dan Cretu’s impressive body of work consists of many such mini-sculptures. And even more impressive, his photographs aren’t digitally altered. From a citrus camera to a veggie boom box, Cretu takes particular care in working quickly due to the short shelf life of the food with which he works. Really imaginative work.
