Prints with Food

I used my prints that I developed in the darkroom to cover with food. The idea behind this is to bring forward the literal idea of the senses. To be able to smell, see, touch and taste the food. By using the foods that I had photographed to put onto the prints it gives the sense of the image coming to life. If the foods are left on the prints they will eventually go mouldy and have a foul smell which would then change the reaction of the image. Using the photographs of the grotesque foods made pretty would then reverse the view of them as the food would go mouldy. 

Strawberry jam to act like jelly.
Mustard to look like custard.

Syrup to put over jelly.
BBQ sauce to look like gravy.
Ice cream
