London-based photographer Nathan Pask has pushed subversive cake photography to the extreme. His series of images with the artists and creatives taking part in the Halloween event ‘Eat Your Heart Out & The PRETOX Potion’ are certainly not like any cake imagery I have seen before.
Zombie sailors (artist Pete Fowler) with nooses around their necks eating cake eyeballs and anatomical heart cupcakes, evil butchers (artist George Morton-Clark) posing with bloody heart cakes laced with maggots and creatives (Cowbag) with giant vagina cakes between their legs were just some of the shots taken by Pask on the shoot two weeks ago. There is even a behind the scenes video!
The shoot took place in the painfully trendy Turman Brewery and these shots are only a hint of the madness to come when the SIlent Hill-themed cake shop opens on the 29th October, in London’s Shoreditch, for three weeks only.
