Chef Jacques Lamerde puts a different spin on junk food photography. He plates the cheap snacks as though they were gourmet dishes, showing that everything is in the eye of the beholder. Through his stunning arrangements, Lamerde essentially captures the feeling people get when they crave a chocolate bar or pizza pocket. Sometimes such snacks go down better than finer foods.

By shedding a different light on junk food photography, Lamerde is quickly gaining an avid following on Instagram. Each image is accompanied by a blurb as well, making them fit even more into an opulent setting. Neatorama writes, "His descriptions take things a step further, making the plates sound like something you'd see on a fine dining restaurant's menu, not just simple Pop Tarts or Hot Pockets."
