The Food Issue of New York Times Magazine has been launched and the promotional image is stunning. The exploding cob of corn taken by high speed photographer Martin Klimas symbolizes today’s issues with soaring food prices, U.S. obesity and a worldwide environmental crisis.

Other photographers are also exploring the notion of blowing up food for art’s sake. Jasper Nance gives us detonating bananas and yogurt. Stephan risks a lovely hand model holding strawberries, eggs and tomatoes. Boris Bos snaps apple slices as they drop gracefully into a bowl of water, while Johnny Chung Lee is partial to blasting beer bottles. The erupting grapes were discovered on Flickr.
