I have a feeling that Caren Alpert was a kid who loved to play with his food. With a curious nature, he has decided to take a closer look at all types of food. A macro photographer, he has created a portfolio filled with extreme closeups of some of many's favorite foods, such as table salt, sprinkles and kiwis.

Equipped with scientific laboratory photo equipment, Caren Alpert explores both organic and processed foods, the foods he eats versus the foods over-indulging Americans choose to eat. Having photographed food for almost eight years now, I can only imagine the differences and insights he has come across.
