Still-life drawings are usually comprised of a sketch, but Big Appetites by Christopher Boffoli is a new series of fine art photography that captures tiny figurines toying with food objects.

These mini figurines are depicted in a food environment that’s meant to evoke Boffoli’s statement regarding excessive food indulgence in American culture. These still-life sculptures are taken in a moment of action while dealing with captured crayfish, ice cream cones, Toaster Strudels and more.

The titles of each photograph are peculiar and each convey a deeper sense of meaning. For example, the photograph entitled ‘Exotic Pets’ shows a group of tiny men hauling a ‘giant’ crayfish. These references link back to Boffoli’s attempt to portray America’s excessive indulgence when dealing with food. The images show people dealing with an abundance and overflow of food.
