20 Fascinating Food Photos

From Studded Bananas to Flying Food Photography

— May 10, 2013 — Tech
The phrase, "don't play with your food" doesn't apply to the photographers of these intriguing food photos. These photos are peculiarly intriguing, fascinating and intricate -- though not necessarily appetizing.

Photographers have incorporated non-edible elements like studs and fabrics to accompany foods. There are also non-traditional combinations of foods that transform into an artistic piece.

Food photography becomes art when it delivers a shock factor. All of these photos are radical and confuse the senses. Our pre-conceived notions of food is broken for a moment. These photos of food show us food like never seen before, in a different light.

From informative images that capture what 200 calories of various foods would look like to in-dish landscapes, these photos are sure to have you in awe. Perhaps take them as a little inspiration for the next time you Instagram your food.
