From the London cityscape to the Rialto Bridge in Venice, photographer Carl Warner has all your favorite travel destinations covered. In food.
In 2008, the Sunday Times published Warner’s “Mushroom Savanna,” made from portobellos. The media spotlight led to appearances on TV and in print, as well as advertising campaigns around the world. Warner is the author of two books, Carl Warner’s Food Landscapes and A World of Food. The latter is a children’s book “to alter children’s perception of food and to encourage them to develop a greater insight to healthy eating and nutritional education.”
Warner sketches his scene, then photographs each composition in layers from back to front. Photographs and ethereal lighting are added in post-production to keep the vegetables from wilting. On his website, Warner writes:
Each image takes two to three days to photograph using a combination of tungsten and flash-lighting technology. Warner spends another few days digitally editing the images.
