The fake food photography created by Michigan-based artist Kristina Lechner is endearing and creative.

At first glance, it is difficult to imagine that these photos feature sculptures made from items such as sponges rather than actual food. In a photo project that she calls "Food Not Food," the artist takes random household items and creates realistic looking food sculptures out of them. One of the most visually interesting items she has created is a burger made from sponges, coasters, cloth and tissues. Another is made from a rubber band-wrapped light bulb that has been painted with eye shadow to resemble a pear.

This fake food photography proves that there is no method, item or process that should go unconsidered when it centers around trying to make visually appealing art.
