These still life images capture tension. Stacking random-sized loaves of different types of bread, artistic photographer Nacho Alegre creates wobbly looking structures. The resulting effect is memorable, making us feel both fascination and a slight sense of worry. This photo series was featured on a Spanish interior design magazine called 'Apartamento'.

Whole wheat baguettes, rye bread and ciabatta are intricately balanced on top of one another against a plain gray background. The photographs focus on nothing but the textured bread towers, shot under subtle lighting.

While some balance the bigger loaves on the bottom and smaller on the top, others randomly place tiny breads in between larger ones. This will make you wonder whether the breads were actually just stacked or glued together.
