Creative studio David Schwen designed this unique photography series that presents deconstructed versions of classic American menu items. Each image features a traditional meal that has been broken down into specific components.

Each American menu item is a famed dish such as a hamburger or a fully loaded hot dog. These crafty images present a new view on daily meals by placing each component of the dish into a specific section of a tray. The trays are color-coordinated to match their background tones.

The most interesting aspect of these images is that the trays are all the exact same size and that they feature the exact same sections. This allows the viewer to gain a consistent visual interpretation of familiar meals that are depicted in an unexpected way.
