Renowned photographer Dominic Episcopo is famous for shooting food. He made headlines a few years ago with his state-shaped steaks and his newest project is for those with a more acquired taste.

Dominic Episcopo showcased his latest work at a festival called Meat America, where he took ground beef, crafted it into words and objects and repackaged it for display.

One would say a nice glass of red should accompany his art.
