Collages are rarely seen in editorial spreads because of the lack of focus, however Mat Maitland has created a high fashion collage-inspired shoot that also makes your mouth water.

In HERO magazine, Maitland uses junk food to parallel the high fashion accessories that are being featured. In one picture, Cartier is paired with mustard and a donut, and in another Valentino is combined with toast and a hamburger. The juxtaposition that Maitland was able to create is captivating; by joining high-end and low-end products he creates a standout editorial. The pictures use bright colors, and have a fun vibe to them. The products look as though they are falling, and even though each shot is busy, the focus stays strongly on the merchandise being displayed. Mat Maitland has been able to successfully combine a high fashion collage and junk food, and make both look good enough to eat.
