Paper Food by Daniel Carlsten, an independent art director and designer based in Stockholm, Sweden, is a crafty series of fake but delicious-looking meals. Utilizing an art form that continues to go strong, this isn't the first time the artist has played with paper to imitate food. Nevertheless, this time around, he has created it for an editorial.
Photographic illustrations for Platinum Magazine, Paper Food by Daniel Carlsten was created for an article on Australian cuisine. From a bottle of red wine to fries in a paper cone, the series is at once realistic and surreal. The images were shot by Patrik Lindell of American Express and Hans Johansson.
Although simplified, Paper Food by Daniel Carlsten is still full of detail.
