If you are hungry right now, you may want to wait until you eat before looking at these Marcel van der Vlugt photographs. Why? Because Marcel van der Vlugt uses models' faces as dinner plates, covering them in meat, honey, chocolate sprinkles and much more.

Taking these close-up shots by Marcel van der Vlugt must have made for quite the cleanup afterward. I wonder what smelled worse, the cheese or the fish?

Implications - Food photography and plating has become its own art form separate from both the cuisine industry and art world. This may be due to the modern-day hijacking of the food industry, as urban "foodies" take to blogs to provide everyday consumers with recipes and restaurant reviews that encourage experimentation with flavors and aesthetics of food.
