eszter burghardt

eszter burghardt creates these vast landscape photographs out of.. wait for it- food. in her studio. the first time i saw her edible vistas i thought maybe they were from a volcano in a rainforest somewhere far away. nope, just your everyday food products. amazing.

her work is based on the remote landscapes of iceland where she spent time in artists residencies. from her artist's statement: to re-live the barren highlands I chose poppy seeds, coco powder, coffee, milk, and chocolate cake crumbs to represent the various textures found in this landscape.
